As a naturopathic physician and faculty member at Bastyr University in Kenmore, Paul Anderson has plenty of opportunity to practice what he prescribes. In the case of drinking green tea for health protection, Anderson says he is a regular -- but not daily -- drinker.

"Green tea has a significant amount of antioxidants," said Anderson the other day, taking a break from moving to a new office. "That helps with regulating cholesterol and burning fat."

For the rest of this very interesting story, go to this link from the Seattle PI on Sept 30, 2008:

I currently take a rosehip extract supplement which is high in antioxidants to help keep my body healthly. I drink a regular amount of black tea which I believe also contains antioxidants, but have not tried green tea.
