Being physician I am shocked to read that beer "was a source of minerals.." Alcohol may be the source of depandance and social misery - it was used for let poor people forget their BIRTHRIGHTS and help them not to see the reality - plutocracy and theocracy playing gods! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.227.205.162 (talk) 13:41, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Beer may have saved the lives of Egyptian peasants the way it saved the lives of medieval European peasants--by providing a wholesome alternative to water. The water of the Nile, like other great rivers, may have carried disease and pollutants, especially during the early Inundation when it would have been washing off the Ethiopian highlands and carrying with it whatever was on those plateaus. For cultures around the world, the bacteria-killing alcohol in beer has been a lifesaver for centuries. Munchkyn (talk) 17:51, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Ancient Egyptians drank opaque beer, with lots of solid particles floating in it. Much that was in bread was also present in beer. 209.162.56.97 (talk) 23:16, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
