This Headline just appeared in my in-box
“Regularly drinking antioxidant-rich green tea may halve the risk of colon and rectal cancer, suggests a new study based in China.”
I read it once, twice, three times before I realized that it was halve and not have. Surely they could have thought of a better word!
In the next couple days, someone will misquote this article to you (proof that they only read the headline, and not the article). Don’t worry. Keep drinking your green tea.
