    the difference is that you are not allowed to drink at work. well at least not here. would be different if it was a german company probably, but it isn't.

    Apparently if you drink hot liquids it increases the risk of esophageal cancer. So your 6th point should be qualified that the green tea must not be "hot" - hot is defined in the article linked above.

    I love green tea but I didn't know that it's that healthy. So I should drink it even more often. I don't drink it hot, I can't stand hot liquids so I let it cool down a bit before I drink.

    Alcohol doesn't relieve dehydration, quite the opposite.

    I quit caffeine three days ago and I got a headache ever since. This stuff is really addictive.

    One of the great benefits of socialized medicine is the ability to detect small effects that are adverse to health. Hot tea was associated with esophageal cancer more than 30 years ago. Here is where and how:

    All English public servants had to spend about 1/2 a day completing a very detailed questioner about their habits. Their health records, from birth to death were (or would be) available and centralized. Unlike the US system where typically your current local doctor may keep them for a few years and in your life you may have a few old ones scatted in 5 different states, but no one can find and assemble them.

    One of the interesting things that turned up when that English data was processed was that the Brits who took milk or cream in their tea had essentially standard rate of esophageal cancer but those that did not had significantly elevated rate of esophageal cancer. The cause of this association was not clear. One theory was that the tannic acid in the tea spent its force on the milk/ cream proteins. The other was that the milk/ cream cooled the tea.

    Your link does not tell if they take their tea straight or with milk/cream. AFAIK, no one knows which factor causes the association with esophageal cancer. As other hot beverages are drunk, my money is on the tannic acid, not the hot liquid.

    The research / early detection / benefits of government medical services / centralized national medical records / from birth to death of almost everyone have enormous value.

    For example, if AIDs has started in England, instead of San Francisco, it would have been recognized years earlier, possibly cured or contained before it spread over the entire globe. Do you have any idea how much money that would have saved? Not only does the US have a lower life expectancy than 69 other nations but it pays much more for the poor health care all but the wealthy receive (and their kids are exposed to many who rarely see a doctor)

    Beer probably does in the short run until the alcohol starts to take it's toll.

    You better start up again. Gets rid of headaches.

    Recently I have switched from coffee to green tea for my breakfast "wake up" drink. The dry weight of the leaves is 30% the complex compounds reported to have health benefits. Today, for the first time, at lunch time, I ate some of the soggy tea leaves that had been used for my breakfast cup. Does anyone know reason why this should not be done? Or of any culture where that is common practice?

    Yes, Japan and Korea...where some brands grind their green tea leaves to an extremely fine powder.

    You can see here how its traditionally mixed with a special bamboo whisk.

    Thanks. I watched all 9:16 minutes of it. Interestingly it includes cleaning of all tools, but no one drank the tea. I think I will put my tea leaves thru the blender and drink all (tea with tea dust in the water).
