If you are looking to "fight" cancer, then you need more than tea. If you are looking for a healthy beverage that will help lower your risks of cancer, then you need to look at what tea has high levels of antioxidants. Green tea is known for this, but I believe this knowledge is based on the western "tea concept" so it is in comparison with Pickwick Earl Grey and the likes. I think I saw that white tea is the new green tea. 

 

I have a half kilo Nescafe tin that says it is naturally rich on antioxidants, according to my daily intake, I should be able to live forever.  The Chinese definition of tea is just to boil some stuff and drink it, no difference compared to soup. So coffee counts as tea.

Supposedly the fruit soursop (it might be 刺番荔枝 in Chinese?) is great for fighting cancer. As for teas, they have antioxidants, but so does fruit, chocolate and several other things. It's best to change your diet to avoid easily oxidized foods, like burnt food, things high in poly unsaturated fats. Green teas have more antioxidants than black teas.

My doctor told me I can't drink green tea anymore because it counters the effects of folic acid absorbtion, which, in turn, counters the effects of the RA medication I am taking. I thought it was bad enough when I was told I can't drink alcohol anymore (also because of the medication), but this news really bummed me out as I have been drinking Chinese green tea for years and absolutely love it. I don't know what to drink now except water.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
