Well said, Geezer...

I have a box of green tea/pomegranite flavor packets for my water bottles that Ruth bought for me. It actually tastes ok and I can go with that if nothing else. If it helps me with my cancer, then I'm cool with that. I hear the same things with red wine and I am quite happy to proceed with my own study on that one...
