4 your health tonight. a new study has uncovered a correlation between drinking hot tea and cancer. the american cancer society report found... drinking two cups of tea at more than 140- degrees, almost doubles your chance of esophageal cancer. it is thought... the heat may damage the esophagus, causing repeated injuries that lead to cancer, in the same way smoke, alcohol and acid reflux do. an expert at the london school of hygiene and tropical medicine says, consuming anything hot enough to cause esophageal injury.. will likely lead to an increased cancer risk. the bottom line is... you can likely keep drinking your tea, coffee and cocoa without a problem -- just keep the heat down.

about a week of spring training baseball left ... if you would like to catch the giants or the a's in arizona. (ken) and if you're wondering what to do in between games in scottsdale ... i have some ideas.
