      I have just been reading that according to scientists drinking tea can increase the risk of prostate cancer.

      What are your thoughts on this?

      Wasn't it red meat at one point could increase the chance of getting cancer? I think I remember once reading that bacon was another aswell.

      I have read and heard before that drinking tea can at least cause you to have stones in your bladder. I think that is possible, since we never know what is really inside tea, and the substances there may precipitate there and cause stones. As for cancers, I'm not sure... I think it is possible, though. We are talking about lifestyle, after all. It may cause other risk factors to cause cancers easier.
