Green tea is effective at preventing cognitive decline

A cup of tea a day can keep dementia away, and this is especially so for those who are genetically predisposed to the debilitating disease.  The longitudinal study involving 957 Chinese seniors aged 55 years or older has found that regular consumption of tea lowers the risk of cognitive decline in the elderly by 50 percent, while APOE e4 gene carriers who are genetically at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease may experience a reduction in cognitive impairment risk by as much as 86 percent.”
