    I love how, when you look at the statistics, they're ~91% sure that it either did nothing, doubled the risk, or something in between. Gotta love epidemiological studies.

    It makes sense, but people should be aware that the data is mixed on whether black tea promotes or prevents calcium oxalate deposition in joints and kidneys, while green tea looks pretty much in the clear.
    Give me liberty. Exploration of other options will be vigorously discouraged.
