Black tea can help fight diabetes

Washington, Aug 1 : Besides boosting the immune system, black tea can be used to control diabetes, according to a new study.

The research has been published in the Journal of Food Science, published by the Institute of Food Technologists.

To reach the conclusion, researchers from the Tianjin Key Laboratory in China studied the polysaccharide levels of green, oolong and black teas and whether they could be used to treat diabetes.

Polysaccharides, a type of carbohydrate that includes starch and cellulose, may benefit people with diabetes because they help retard absorption of glucose. The researchers found that of the three teas, the polysaccharides in black tea had the most glucose-inhibiting properties.

The black tea polysaccharides also showed the highest scavenging effect on free radicals, which are involved in the onset of diseases such as cancer and rheumatoid arthritis.

"Many efforts have been made to search for effective glucose inhibitors from natural materials," says lead researcher Haixia Chen.

"There is a potential for exploitation of black tea polysaccharide in managing diabetes," the expert added. (ANI)

Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward.

This visually and emotionally rich movie recalls the life of a very peculiar man born in the early 20th century who ages backwards. His tale unfolds through a diary read by the daughter of his love, Daisy. Throughout life he goes through the same things we do, growing up and eventually growing old. He's a thoughtful observer, discovering life from all different angles. But it is not his life that makes him unique. His love is what makes him special. He spends a lifetime trying to understand how his love for Daisy works and still only gets a few incredible years really loving her. As their lives tell us, the years of frustration and hardship are all worth it if only for a few moments of happiness. [source:]

i'm excited to see this. Too bad January 8th pa ang showing sa Pinas.
Is it GOOD? Lemme know. =)
