Abstract

This book discusses the values of green tea as having antioxidant benefits as well as healing attributes. A particular emphasis is placed on the Asian population because they tend to benefit from the increased amount of green tea in their diets. They have less cancer of the mouth, colon, prostate and bladder, as well as less cardiovascular disease, obesity and high blood pressure. Some diseases are virtually nonexistent in China and Japan, such as xerostamia, or dry mouth, which affects fully a third of elderly Americans. People throughout millennia have intuited and demonstrated the healing properties of green tea. Green tea is an integral part of the Asian culture because they have learned from centuries of folklore, anecdotal evidence and conventional wisdom that the beverage is good for them.
