Did you know the reason green tea is "high in antioxidants" is because it doesn't have antioxidants.

Green Tea helps reduce oxidative stress not by supplying antioxidants, but instead by supplying phytochemicals that act as oxidants.

There are several proteins which transcribe genes associated with antioxidant defense, the body has evolved to express inhibitors that are prone to oxidative damage from food chemicals, you don't want to be spending energy on reducing free radicals all the time so this inhibitor remains (because you don't have high free radicals all the time), but the chemicals in green tea oxidise these inhibitors cause disulfide bridges to form disabling the inhibitor causing genes to start being transcribed, these inhibitors are very sensitive and stop working before oxidation reaches levels where it really starts cause damage to other componants of the cell.

Intersex people, whether they identify as trans or not, regardless of their presentation and pronouns, are valid. And I never, ever see it said. So fellow intersex people, never, ever let the ignorant rob you of your identities, even if they pretend to be well-meaning. -Katie
