There's not much to do except I found a few more links - and the opening sentence seemed a little clumpy, what I've done is put my version before yours so you can compare the two. If you prefer mine, I'll add the links and remove yours.smiley - ok

It's a great entry and the healing powers of nature never cease to amaze!

Hiya GB,

Glad to see you're getting into the swing of subbing, and thanks for the nice comments about the entry smiley - cheers.

I agree with you about the opening sentence, but I'm still not sure it entirely works. How about "Tea is a much-loved drink, and different kinds are drunk every day around the world." (I took out the word hot too, as it's not always drunk hot).

Good links to the BBC Health web pages, btw - I was looking for a decent page on pancreatitis but couldn't find one.

smiley - cool. I'm going to confess now and tell you that DannyB came up with the new sentence as I'd looked at it too many times and my brain had given up (doesn't take much on a Monday!). smiley - blush

And I don't mind being called 'older' - as someone with several younger friends (who like to remind me of the fact), I'm used to it! smiley - winkeye

Good to go, go for it!
