Pisalat is alive and well and living in Nice, Marseilles, etc. That's  
a little more like halec than liquamen (IOW, a paste rather than a  
clear liquid), I guess, but the process is pretty much the same and  
the flavor is similar.

I had forgotten about the allegations of murri (or its ingredients)  
being carcinogenic, but somehow missed the details on why this turns  
out to be untrue. I know that consumption of  the solid cakes that  
are a by-product of soy sauce production has been linked to China  
having the highest per capita incidence of stomach cancer in the  
world. Has that been disproven as well?
