New Research Provides Evidence that Tea May Improve Attention and Focus, Keep Brain Cells Healthy, & Influence Genetics in Cancer
Date:7/18/2008

ween black tea and Parkinson's disease, based on a 12 year prospective study of over 63,000 men and women, that was due to black tea ingredients separate from its caffeine content. A retrospective study, by Kandinov et al, of nearly 300 patients with Parkinson's disease found that drinking three or more cups of tea per day delayed motor symptoms by 7.7 years. In addition to epidemiological data, results from recent animal studies showed that tea polyphenols may improve memory in Alzheimer's disease (Rezai-Zadeh et al), and be neuroprotective against oxidative stress (Hague et al).

Tea May Alter Cancer Genetics

Results from a tea intervention on the role of green tea on the prevention of cancer provided insights into the cutting-edge field of nutri-genomics, or how gene susceptibility toward chronic diseases can be altered through dietary interventions. Iman Hakim, M.D., Ph.D., M.P.H., Professor and Dean of the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health and Professor at the Arizona Cancer Center, University of Arizona, has conducted several human clinical trials over the past decade on the role both green and black tea may play in certain cancers. Her latest human clinical trial suggests that bioactive compounds in tea have a significant effect on genes that impact cancer susceptibility and repair from environmental insults.

"The good news is that we are seeing that green tea is impacting genes that play a role in cancer, but we cannot pinpoint who will be responders versus non-responders at this time," noted Dr. Hakim. "In addition, our recent preliminary data show a beneficial effect of green tea on lipid profile among smokers and former smokers. Since there are no known negative effects of consuming tea, and it may be beneficial, there's no reason not to recommend drinking it." Dr. Hakim recommends at least four cups per day.
