“Better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one.”

Every morning after making our son’s bottles for the day, my wonderful hubby climbs the stairs with two piping hot cups of green tea for us to sip while we get ready for work.  Initially I think of it as a sweet and kind gesture.  But it’s so much more than that.  He’s saving our lives and preventing health risks in his kind gesture of adoration.  Thanks sweetie!

ABC’s morning dose of health inquiry, ‘The Doctors’, had Dr. Kristi Funk of the Pink Lotus Breast Center on their show several months back.  She stated that a cup a day of this medicinal steamy goodness can reduce the chances of getting breast cancer by 50%!!!  Needless to say I appreciated those morning cups of green tea more and more!

There’s no secret of the Chinese Proverb in the title, that green tea is a staple in the cups of the health conscious.  But don’t take my word for it!  Here’s a great article from About.com where the miracles of this leafy jewel are revealed.

Enjoy the article…
