Article on green tea preventing Alzheimer's disease

Here is an article about a study conducted at a British university that showed that drinking green tea may help prevent Alzheimer's disease. Specifically, the tea may inhibit certain brain enzymes that are linked to the disease.

The study looked at the effects of black tea, green tea, and coffee on three chemicals known to play a role in Alzheimers. Coffee did not show any effects, and black tea worked against two of the chemicals, but only green tea was found to inhibit all three.
