As your neighborhood Lord of the Underworld, collector of souls, and part-time mayor of a charming little village down by the coast, I thought I would share a bit of news with my fellow Elliquiy-ians, since it's such an obscure medical fact that many of you may not have been aware of already. So go ahead, I'll wait while you sit down for your safety, before I blow your mind.
Okay, so the big medical secret is *drum-roll*...drinking a pitcher of tea made of 100 tea bags daily for seventeen years tends to be very bad for your health. Don't worry, I'll wait for your minds to recover.
In a somewhat more serious note, apparently a woman in Detroit, Michigan developed a rare bone disorder called skeletal fluorosis that comes from having too much flourine in your diet. And since tea is a natural source of flourine, trying to bankrupt the Lipton company one pitcher at a time apparently gives you entirely too much flourine in your body to be removed naturally. So it gets depoisted on the bones and ligaments and causes pain and other complications.
So the moral of the story? An addiction to tea is a terrible thing. Friends don't let friends brew excessively.
