While I appreciate your comments they do not address the question

In addition, your analogy to sweet potatoes and kale does not
address the issue you are raising either.

While it is true that no single individual food is required for good
health, sweet potatoes and kale are actually real "foods" which can
easily provide most all the essential nutrients human needs which
include calories, carbohydrates, protein, essential fats, vitamins,
minerals, and fiber. Tea and/or coffee are not foods and could not
provide the essential nutrients humans need. So, while one may
not need to consume sweet potatoes or kale, we do not to
consume similar foods. We do not need to consume tea and/or
coffee or any similar beverage.

Coffee contains chemicals that can have negative effects and
caffeine is a drug. So, while some may choose to include either for
many different reasons, it is important to recognize the potential
health issues associated with the use of them, good or bad.

However, in the end, we have to realize that again, it is a
misguided argument. The reason is, the majority of health issues
that most humans are suffering and dying from are not caused by
either coffee, tea or caffeine, and will not be solved by any of them

The original question raised is a good one as it addresses how the
media distorts and misrepresents information.
