Stirring and stirring and stirring my brew

First my dentist had a problem with me drinking sugary tea. Now there are reports that milk cancels out all those health benefits that we, the tea-addicted, were happy to hear we were accidentally getting.

I can't help but feel personally persecuted by Science. Curse you, Science! Why are you out to ruin my daily (or several times daily) cuppa? If it isn't Science who's at the bottom of all this, I suspect it's all a conspiracy by the mint/oolong tea industries to get me, the main consumer of all the tea in the whole world, to switch away from Earl Grey/English Breakfast.

Ms. S. Rah:

We here at Monkey Engine Inc. are confuzzeled. As an adimitted Francophile you penchant for a cuppa is something that we find troubling. We were hoping you'd explain to us how, you, as one of them (frog, cheese eating surrender monkey, etc.) came to appriciate one of the very cornerstones of the British Empire.

I am, at once, a Francophile and an Anglophile. Fortunately this is a time of peace between the two so I don't have to pick sides.

I read that too. Then I read to be distrustful of foodie/health research since they might be hiding the bad news for a profit. Except in this case, no one wins.

But, why are you so mad at a magazine?

Not Science. Just Science.
