Tea

The tea industry should be happy because I endorse tea. This is because tea has antioxidant properties. It contains a number of beneficial natural compounds, most notably Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). This is a Catechin (catechins are antioxidants), also known as a flavonoid. These compounds (EGCG) have been shown to reduce clogged arteries and fight cancer. These compounds are also found in fruits and vegetables and in chocolate.

My interest in tea was recently rekindled because of learning that Ray Kurzweil drinks 7-10 cups per day. The world needs a book about tea documenting the latest research, much of which is very exciting and positive.
