of light and shadows
Tea Drinking in the UK
Yvonne and Alice talk about how tea became a very popular drink in the UK and and we hear how many cups of tea British people drink every day.

Coffee addiction
Do you have a strong need to keep drinking coffee? Scientists are warning about the effects of being addicted to caffeine - the stimulant found in coffee. In 6 Minute English, Rob and Finn talk about the dangers of drinking too much coffee, and look at some language associated with addictions

The story behind coffee
Coffee is now the most popular drink in the world – even for the English, long-known as a nation of tea drinkers. And we are becoming more choosy about the coffee we drink - the focus is very much on quality. But what about the economics and politics of coffee production? It's as complicated as getting the right flavour in your cup.

Suspended coffee

Buying a cup of coffee in a café can be a real treat - but what would you do if you couldn't afford one? Would you go without? You could ask for a suspended coffee instead. In this programme, Neil and Jen discuss the new idea of suspended coffees - a scheme where you pay for a coffee for someone who can't afford one.

Food banks

The UK economy is now growing after the 2008 recession. But millions of people are still struggling to survive. Rob and Finn discuss how food banks work and how they help people in need.

Food waste
Many people around the world throw away food that's still good enough to eat. This food waste could feed millions. Rob and Finn discuss why some of us are tempted to buy more food than we need and what attempts are being made to reduce the amount of wasted food.

Global waste: food for thought
How much food do you throw away? Chris discusses with Jen the problems of global food and water waste in this week's 6 Minute English.

The bitter taste of sugar
How much sugar do you have a day? Rob and Neil talk about the recent recommendation by the World Health Organisation for people to reduce the amount of sugar they eat even more than previously advised. They say that it should account for 5% of the total energy we take from food – down from 10%.
What do experts suggest to help people eat less sugar? Follow the discussion and learn some food-related vocabulary.

Is eating meat killing our planet?

As our appetite for meat increases, we're being told to cut down on eating the stuff. A study claims a rise in the production of meat is causing more greenhouse gases which harm the planet. Rob and Finn discuss why this is happening and the damage it is doing.

Drinking around the world
Having an alcoholic drink is something many of us do. But where we have that drink is important too. From boozers to bars, places to drink may be different around the world but they have one thing in common - they are a place to meet your friends and have a good time. Rob and Neil talk about these drinking dens and hear about what it's like to drink in the only pub in a remote village in Greenland.

How bad is booze?
Do you enjoy a glass or two of wine? How about three or four? Is beer your favourite drink or do you go for gin? Rob and Alice discuss how good or bad alcohol is for you. They also talk about what risk to your health regular drinking may have.

Drinking laws
In the programme today, has a change in drinking laws in England and Wales affected people's attitudes to alcohol? We'll be hearing from a medical worker as Jackie and Elena talk about the language of drinks and going out

UK's first healthy pizza
Jen and Rob find out about a team who have reinvented a pizza recipe to make it nutritionally balanced.

Today Doug and Jackie talk about going on a diet. Many people go on a diet to try to lose weight. One type of diet that became popular a few years ago was the 'low-carb' diet - what does that mean?

Purple tomatoes
Would you eat a purple tomato? What if it had health benefits? Scientists have developed one that could be on our shop shelves soon. This is the latest example of genetically modified food - food that has been changed from its natural form. There are many reasons for growing GM food, and Rob and Finn discuss some of them in the programme.

Genetically modified cows

Babies are often allergic to cows' milk. A scientific breakthrough means that may no longer be the case.
But is it right for humans to play with nature to such an extent. And could there be some hidden danger ahead? In this week's 6 Minute English, Jen and Neil discuss genetically modified cows.

Brazilian food
Brazil is known for its lively music and the friendliness of its people. Rob, who loves exploring, also enjoys his food and is keen to know what sort of dishes he'll discover if he visits the country. Our Brazilian colleagues Grace and Thomas describe one of Brazil's most popular dishes, 'feijoada', and give us the recipe for one of its most traditional cocktails, the 'caipirinha'

Shark's fin soup
As people celebrate the Chinese New Year, Yvonne and Finn talk about a traditional Chinese dish which is controversial with some.

Sausage wars

Rob and Rosie talk about plans to gentrify Wenceslas Square in the Czech capital, Prague. Several stands that sell the cheap and tasty klobasa - or sausage - are to be removed and not everybody is happy. Find out more in 6 Minute English.
