It is all preliminary -- much of the scientific work has been done on animals in other countries -- but there is some evidence that drinking tea may help stave off cancer and lower cholesterol.Research from one study presented at the International Tea Symposium in New York earlier this year indicates that zTC consumption of Chinese green tea inhibits esophageal cancer in rats. Another paper shows that the main constituent of Japanese green tea (epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG) seems to prevent cancerous skin tumors in mice and apparently has lowered the incidence of gastric cancer in some Japanese people who consume it in large quantities.

Summertime is skin time. And whether you plan to bare a little or a lot this season, it simply won't do to hit the beach and barbecues with parched, ashy, reddened or rough skin. And those aren't the only problems caused by winter's chill. Dr. Robert Weiss, a board-certified dermatologist and director of the Maryland Laser, Skin and Vein Institute in Hunt Valley, explains that post-winter skin can have less baseline pigment, making it more sensitive to summer's rays. "We've had so little sun exposure," he said.

I'm an herbal tea drinker, but recently I saw a TV show that suggested regular tea is better for the body than herbal tea. Is this true? Perhaps. Studies show that black and green teas pack more of an antioxidant punch than herbal teas. With a different chemical makeup than black and green tea, the herbal variety has fewer flavonoids (plant-derived antioxidants). Bottom line? While herbal tea does have the advantage of being caffeine-free, it wouldn't hurt you to also drink regular tea. So, come tomorrow's tea time, try brewing a pot of Darjeeling or Earl Grey.

It turns out Mary Alice Yeskey of Charm City Cakes is a big "musical theater nerd. " The "Ace of Cakes" star had stars in her eyes on Thursday when she presented the company of "Wicked" with an "Ozmopolitan" cake before Thursday night's performance at the Hippodrome.  The three-level green and purple cake combined imagery from the popular stage musical with iconic Baltimore images like the Domino Sugar sign. (Check out the Hippodrome marquee atop the second tier.) It turns out that the company of '"Wicked" are big Mary Alice fans.

Once possessed of a vaguely countercultural vibe and available primarily in health-food stores and Asian markets, green tea has hit the big time. Take a trip to the supermarket, and the tea shelves are fairly bricked with bright green boxes. Lipton, Twinings and Salada, stalwarts of the tea trade, are all offering green teas. Too busy to brew your own? Snapple and Arizona Iced Tea are happy to sell you bottled green tea. Even cosmetic companies have gotten into the act: Elizabeth Arden is introducing a green-tea-scented spray and fragrance collection that promises "Exhilaration.

A friend swears by coral calcium that she orders through the mail. She says it cures her aches and pains. What makes coral calcium different from the inexpensive calcium I buy in the grocery story? Coral calcium comes from dead coral from the seabed, while the inexpensive calcium you buy might come from oyster shells or limestone deposits. Some marketers are promoting coral calcium as a cure-all for many chronic and serious conditions. The Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission are beginning to clamp down on unsubstantiated claims.

I've read about raisins and gin for arthritis. At the liquor store, I was told sloe gin is best for this remedy. Your Web site just says gin. Which is it? The original recipe involves regular gin and golden raisins. Soak the raisins in just enough gin to cover them; allow the gin to evaporate; then keep the raisins in a closed container and eat nine a day. We have also heard from readers who have substituted dark raisins for golden raisins and sloe gin for ordinary gin. Sloe gin is flavored with sloe berries instead of juniper, the flavoring in regular gin. Sloe berries come from the blackthorn, a European bush, and have traditionally been used for digestive problems.

What should you pack in a family first-aid kit when you travel? That depends, obviously, on who's in your family, what medical conditions they have, and whether you're trekking in the Himalayas or hanging out closer to civilization. At a minimum, said Josh Baker, director of health and safety for the American Red Cross of Massachusetts Bay, you should include: Adhesive tape Antiseptic ointment Band-Aids of assorted sizes Blanket (can be a metallicized emergency blanket that folds to the size of a cigarette pack)

Each week a nutritionist from the University of Maryland Medical Center provides a guest post to The Baltimore Sun's health blog Picture of Health (baltimoresun.com/pictureofhealth), which is reprinted here. This week, Elaine Pelc weighs in on teas. There are many health claims surrounding tea. Some have stronger supporting evidence than others. Tea can be broken down into five types: white, green, black, oolong and herbal. The first four are all created from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis bush and are categorized based on their levels of oxidation, which means a change in chemical structure when exposed to oxygen.

I am a creature of habit. I work out the same four evenings each week for the same 60-minute regimen. I mow my lawn and grocery shop the same way every Saturday. Each evening, I recline in "Mike's chair" to read and watch TV. Have I become my father's ghost? For 40 years, I've preferred khakis, sweaters, and button-down shirts at work and rugby shirts and jeans at home. Summertime staples are shorts, polo shirts and deck shoes. Boring? That's my middle name for dress, diet and beyond.

Teavolve never felt right in Fells Point. Don't get me wrong - I always liked the funky little tea shop with its array of nonalcoholic drinks and regular local music showcases. But you wouldn't expect to find a place like Teavolve in a neighborhood filled with pubs and clothing shops. Then word spread that Teavolve's owners had opened a location on Aliceanna Street in Harbor East, complete with a liquor license and live entertainment. In short, Teavolve had teavolved. Zing! The new Teavolve, or Teavolve 2 (as I call it)

I would like to try the cinnamon, lime juice and vinegar combo mentioned in your column for weight loss. What is the recipe? My husband is diabetic, so we just started using cinnamon extract made in the drip coffee-maker. How much lime and vinegar do we need to add? How much should we drink? And is the (shudder) vinegar necessary? Many readers want this recipe, and the person who came up with it agreed to share it in detail. Here is Lisa's Weight Loss Elixir: Put five decaffeinated green tea bags in 5 cups of water and bring to a full boil.

Six times this past summer, Richard Thomas spent 24 hours in a hermetically sealed room about the size of a jail cell - as a human lab rat at a federal research facility in Beltsville. He could surf the Internet, watch television and make phone calls. But every morsel he ate was carefully measured. Every iota of gas he exhaled was closely monitored. And, occasionally, he had to extend his arm through a tube so scientists could draw blood. "I didn't really fear it, but I don't fear going to the dentist either.

It is back-to-school time for the college set, and plenty of parents, who will miss their kids like crazy in less than a week, are glad to have their bathrooms and their car keys back. Not to mention a good night's sleep. Me? I can't wait to get the refrigerator back. My daughter, Jessie, the budding foodie, has been home for the summer working two jobs. But the hunger such a workload might trigger isn't the reason my sink is always filled with dirty dishes. The child doesn't eat much, but she cooks like crazy.
