Psychology Today on Tea
Recently I received a free subscription to Psychology Today magazine, and the September/October 2007 issue has arrived with a nice little article titled "Fit to a Tea: Green or black, tea packs a surprising punch" by Greg Isaacson.
I hope you can tell a bit about the format from the photo, because I like the way the magazine lists the medicinal properties of green tea in the first column, black tea in the second column, and both kinds of tea in the third column.
Here's my quickie version: Green tea is good for treating arthritis, cancer, cholesterol, intestinal inflammation, liver disease and sunburn. Black tea: Bone health, cancer, cholesterol, heart disease and stress (tea "speeds recovery from stressful events," it says, but we all knew that!). Both: Brain health, diabetes, oral health, weight control. I really like this handy, chart-style approach to the topic. Nice job!
