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.

Philadelphia's Chinatown has long been a destination for certain things: implausibly cheap fruits and vegetables, an endless supply of beckoning-cat statues, and banquets of spicy delicacies spinning on tabletop lazy susans. But, fortune cookies aside, it was not really where you'd go for dessert. In the last year or so, that's changed. At least eight new dessert spots have opened (or will soon) within the few blocks framed by Ninth and 11th Streets, Filbert to Vine, bringing whole genres of sweets you didn't know you were craving.

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?

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 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.

JEFF COPELAND prefers to take his runs outside, on the streets of Francisville. "You get to be a part of humanity that way," Copeland said last night. "You get to see what's going on. " It's an appropriate observation, given the last four years - the time since his release from prison. Copeland, 39, was thrust into the spotlight yesterday when President Obama met with him and then mentioned him by name as an example in his address to the NAACP national convention at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

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.
