Green tea fights Huntington's disease

Yet another disease against which green tea appears to be effective: Huntington's disease.

Green tea can apparently inhibit the formation of the lethal protein aggregates that are a characteristic feature of Huntington's disease (HD). This finding was reported by Dagmar E. Ehrnhoefer, a member of the research group of Dr. Erich Wanker of the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine Berlin-Buch (MDC), Germany, at the international conference "Neurodegenerative Diseases: Molecular Mechanisms in a Functional Genomics Framework" in Berlin.
