are good for you again.

It doesn't seem that long since my morning coffee was bad for me!

Quickbeam don't get too excited this time next month they will be bad for you again and the milk you put into them will no doubt give you cancer.

And picking the cups up more than 10 times will give you RSI

Maybe I should gorge on it while it's good for me?

Better drink it now while it's still good for you but don't sit down to drink it enter link description here but that was last year so it may be OK now.

And don't forget that if you have plenty of fruit to get you healthy it will strip the enamel of your teeth so you could need dentures then you will not be able to eat the apples.

In the 17th century Cornelis Bontekoe advised people to 'drink fifty or a hundred or two hundred cups at a time'. Some say he was a great believer in its power, others point out that he was paid by the Dutch East Indies Company.

I don't know where the Express gets its third from except by adding together the effects of green tea and coffee, something that the researchers don't do.

The key sentence is 'The drink has developed a reputation for being healthy' meaning people who want to be healthy are more likely to drink it. Those same people are also more likely to exercise, drink less and eat well. It says the research allowed for these confounders but that is very hard to do.

I can only assume that the Express says 'Previous research has shown green tea can also lower the risk of heart disease' because it doesn't want to say that this research did not find a link.

I'm sorry to give a serious reply to a light-hearted thread but it makes me crazy. The media happily misreports scientific stories and, by doing so, devalues scientists in the public mind. That same media then writes about how the UK is failing to develop because not enough young people are studying science at university.

It must be a serious no news day as that is the front page story that caught my eye as I was buying bread at the co-op.

The news is overdramatized.

Thank goodness for NHS Choices.

Perhaps we should just drink water and eat Soylent Green.

I take 1 X 75mg aspirin tablet [prescribed by my doctor] daily, to help prevent me getting/taking a stroke. Is green tea available on prescription?

Not if you wish to take it in the Willow Tea Rooms!
