Green tea research leads to gum and other products

...Hsu noted. The green tea gum not only protects the tissue but stimulates the salivary glands to produce more moisture. Healthy people can chew the gum for preventive health, or just to enjoy a piece of gum, Dr. Hsu said, noting that the cost is comparable to that of regular gum. He suggests chewing a piece ...

Light turns on anticancer agents

... Va., Aug. 24, 2004 In order to not harm innocent tissue while aggressively treating diseases such as cancer with powerful medicine, scientists have been creating therapy agents that they can activate with light only at the site of a tumor. Until now, almost all photodynamic therapy agents have required o...
