"Synergy of Teas" mentioned in Ted Talk about Health

A reliable information source for advances in research and technology is the website TED .  One impressive May 2010 posting is a 20 minutes speech by Dr. William Li who presents a new way to think about treating cancer and other diseases.  He introduces the concept eloquently on "anti-angiogenesis : preventing the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor".   To my delight, the benefit of tea drinking is used in his PowerPoint presentation to illustrate "the crucial first (and best) step to promote anti-angiogenesis by cutting off the supply lines (for cancer growth) and beat cancer at its own game".  Moreover, the synergy effect of tea combination is highlighted.  What a good incentive for my blog readers to try out new teas!
