Teapot cancer tonic?

The author of this article from Toronto's NOW Magazine interviewed and directly quotes a handful of experts about the health benefits of green tea.

The bottom line [Ed.: cheesy expression, Monk] is that the jury is still out [another cheesy expression]. Serious scientific investigation into how the many, many compounds in green tea fight illness has begun only relatively recently.

On the other hand, nearly all the evidence coming out suggests that green tea is just plain good for you. Then tere's plenty of circumstancial evidence, such as low cancer rates in areas of Japan where per capita tea consumption is highest.

So stay tuned ... and keep sipping that green tea!
