Tea and health

Study reveals more tea health benefits

Tea can not only stave off heart disease, cataracts, and even help women conceive, it can also prevent colon cancer according to one study, states the New Scientist.

Green tea has long been known to protect against certain types of cancer, but the fermentationrocess involved in making black tea was thought to destroy the protective compounds.
Now researchers in Britain and Italy have found that if rats are given extracts of black tea-the equivalent of three or four cups a day-theiy are protected against the effects of a known carcinogen (Food and Chemical Toxicology, vol 38, p. 1085). Other, common-or-garden teas should have the same effects as well, says Mike Clifford of Surrey University.
