Oh, FFS!

Jesus fucking Christ:

Drinking steaming hot tea has been linked with an increased risk of oesophageal (food tube) cancer, Iranian scientists have found.

WTF? All these years we've been reading about the health benefits of green teas and stuff, and now it turns out it's going to kill us because we drink them neat?

Look you fucking health nazis, any fucking thing done to extremes will damage you. But what will we have now? Fucking health warnings on PG Tips? Tea only sold to over-18s? Licenses to sell tea?

Just fucking fuck off, all of you!

Tip of the clown wig to the very scary lady.

It says «steaming hot» in first place, nothing to do with tea itself. Known stuff really, it's bad for your health to eat or drink something very hot.

Fuck me raw.
Everything causes cancer, ask the Mail. We are fundamentally flawed, badly evolved chimps who's bodies randomly kill us for no fucking reason whatsoever. We never evolved out of being cancer-prone because there is very little drive to do so - it being mainly a disease of the old.

Also, if you're drinking tea hotter than 70C you fucking deserve some kind of injury anyway.

Or, stick to drinking coffee with the real men.

stick to drinking cold stuff before that fucking causes us cancer too.

In Iran they drink black tea. Obviously served very, very hot! Keep burning your mouth and oesophagus and you will eventually get cancer. It's down to constant and damaging irritation. We don't get this problem. Coz we in Blighty stick cold milk in our black tea and cool it down. So, just because our continental friends laugh at us for our quaint manner of drinking tea, at least we don't get cancer from it.

Any typos will be down to dyslexia, a shit keyboard and a 'can't be arsed to proofread' bad attitude.
