“I’d rather take coffee than compliments just now.”

”• Louisa May Alcott, Little Women


“Some people will tell you there is a great deal of poetry and fine sentiment in a chest of tea.”

”• Ralph Waldo Emerson


“Chemotherapy tests your sanity.”

The latest Swedish menu option comes straight from the degreed

waiters at a Stochholm dining spot called The Karoliska. Pay careful

attention. Karolinska is where Nobel Prizes are decided and awarded.


The October, 2015 edition of the International Journal of Cancer reports

The results of a study relating breast cancer to coffee, tea and caffeine

Consumption of 42,099 women from 30-49 years of age:


“Compared to no consumption, women consuming greater than 1 cups tea

per day showed an increased breast cancer risk. Our findings suggest that

coffee consumption and caffeine intake is negatively associated with

the risk of overall breast cancer, and tea consumption is positively

associated with the risk of overall breast cancer.”


Scientists have simplified the art of drawing conclusions. With fresh

canvas and crayons, connect the dots and fill in their blueprints with

your own conclusions. This is not the best news for lovers of tea who

once rejected coffee for previously accepted health considerations.
