We were reminded just how perversely trade, health and culture can interact upon reading the news from Shanghai this week that Chinese men and women who regularly drink green tea have far less throat cancer. Up to 60 percent less, in fact. (Talk about low-tech medicine.) The fuller truth, of course, is that the Chinese are not faring as well in terms of certain other cancers. While they drink a lot of green tea, they also smoke like fiends, a habit that is pushed on them by their government, which runs state cigarette enterprises, and increasingly by ours, which has been looking to Asia as a monster tobacco export market.

So much has been written about the health benefits of green tea that it's nearly impossible to separate the science from the hype. It has been extolled in Asia for both its delicate flavor and its restorative properties for centuries, of course. And now we're told that green tea may lower the risk of heart attack, prevent stomach and skin cancers, control cholesterol and blood pressure, reduce cavities, aid weight loss, and extend life. The operative word is may. The research in these areas, while promising, isn't conclusive.

Ancients feasted on barbecue Chemical analysis of dirty dishes found in a tomb in Turkey have given archeologists clues to what ancients considered a feast fit for a king, perhaps for King Midas. The occasion was a funeral 2,700 years ago, where barbecued lamb or goat in a spicy stew with lentils was served with a potent mixed drink of grape wine, barley beer and mead. Tea for eight Are you developing a thirst for green tea - possibly because you've heard about its possible anitoxidant health benefits?

Among the breakfast choices this week at the Starbucks near Murray's Deli in Bala Cynwyd were a platter of come-hither apple fritters and tall green tea lattes. You could find the same combo a few miles away in the city, at the Starbucks across from Whole Foods at 20th and Callowhill. The only difference was that in the city the calories were posted on the menu board (as required by recent changes to the city health code); in the suburbs, they were not. And what that told you (or didn't tell you)

Drinking tea with high-fat meals could help reduce the risk of heart attack, according to research at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. In a study reported Sunday at the 51st annual Scientific Session of the American College of Cardiology in Atlanta, drinking black tea or green tea with fatty foods lessened the fat's damaging effects on blood vessels. The double-blind, randomized study used ultrasound to examine blood vessels in the arms of 30 healthy people ages 20 to 55 before and after they drank an 8-ounce cup of black tea, green tea, or a tealike placebo, with a high-fat meal.

NEW YORK Astronomers find planet beyond Pluto Astronomers have found an icy mini-planet that orbits the sun well beyond Pluto, providing evidence that the solar system extends much farther than was once thought. The little planet is about 300 miles across, which gives it a surface area comparable to Texas. It is the brightest solar system object to be found beyond Neptune since the discovery of Pluto's moon Charon in 1978. At its most distant, it wanders three times farther from the sun than Pluto, tracing a looping, oblong path into an astronomical terra incognita.

There is tea and then there is Tea. There is bagged Lipton made in a coffee mug using the "hot" knob on the office water cooler; English-style afternoon tea served at the Four Seasons in delicate porcelain cups with a side of scones; hot tea with lemon to soothe a sore throat; iced tea for relief from the heat; and fine fresh-brewed tea from hand-picked leaves, savored by connoisseurs. And then there is Chanoyu , an ancient ceremony in which matcha green tea powder is brewed one cup at a time in a mindful manner practiced by early Shoguns and perfected by the 16th-century Zen Buddhist master, Sen no Rikyu (1522-1591)

There are things we take for granted in this part of the country: To me, the bagel is first and foremost. It defines the East as significantly as a Philly cheesesteak. Yet, there I was, sailing along the Nile on a fancy cruise at breakfast time. I looked in the bread basket, and there they were: bagels. On the Nile? I knew they couldn't be good. And they weren't. They were white bread made round. I've been on a bagel quest ever since. My goal is to have a bagel in every foreign city I visit.

As a child, Elaine Sirna Shaughnessy never liked the smell of perfume. Too unnatural. But she happily inhaled whatever wafted from her mother's kitchen in Delaware Township, later to become Cherry Hill. Especially on Sunday mornings, before church, when Mom made "gravy" for the week. Those scents were very pleasurable, and may have been a subconscious trigger for the turn her life would take in the mid-1980s. That was when Shaughnessy, a stressed-out school administrator, read an article about aromatherapy, a form of alternative medicine using fragrant "essential oils" distilled from plants.

HERE'S what I think of the people who are upset (upset?!) at the jubilation over the death of al Qaeda's monster-in-chief: Please go get a cup of green tea to calm your nerves, a good selection from Oprah's book club - and some smelling salts. You poor, delicate things. I couldn't believe it when just one day after the righteous execution of the man who could on occasion make Hitler look warm and fuzzy, some handwringers with journalism degrees decried the "unseemly" celebration of Osama bin Laden's death.

Tea is for drinking, to be sure, but what about tea for eating? Many of us know the marbleized tea eggs and tea-smoked duck of Chinese kitchens or the green tea ice cream found in many Asian restaurants, but how often have we encountered oolong-brined turkey, salmon lacquered in green tea, or "smoky" black lentils cooked in lapsang souchong tea? These are just some of the 150 recipes "steeped in tradition from around the world" to be found in a new book, Culinary Tea (Running Press, $22.95)
