Green tea reduces pneumonia risk

Folks, it's getting to the point where even I'm having trouble keeping up with all the research results coming out about the health benefits of green tea.

Here's another one:

Drinking as little as one cup or less of green tea per day was associated with 41 percent less risk of dying from pneumonia among Japanese women, the investigators found.

The findings, they say, "support the possibility" that green tea contains compounds capable of destroying or inhibiting the growth of viruses and microorganisms.
