~Green Tea~

I recently read in a magazine that people who drink 8-10 cups of green tea daily get 30% fewer colds and flu than those who do not drink green tea.

So I'm supposed to chug down 10 cups of green tea day in and day out and I still have a 70% chance* of catching someone else's cold?

I want to take something with a better rate of return!

*Maybe someone who has a better handle on statistics could tell me the percentage of chance someone with 30% less chance of catching something would have? Statistic math confuses me. :)

With drinking all that liquid, all I can think of is that old line "Better to belch the belch than squelch the belch and bear the pain"

I'm sorry! My previous comment was sarcastic and grumpy, so I deleted it. I have no clue about statistics, so I'm no help there.

no help here on statistics either. the only thing I know is that people figure out how to manipulate it so that it benefits whatever they are trying to say. :)

LOL Joyce, I've never heard that before.

Susan, it's ok. :)

Rebecca, I totally agree! LOL

But I also read if you drink 3 cups of green tea a day, you burn an extra 80 calories:)
