[MOL] Oh My Gosh! ARE WE IN TROUBLE!



*  ON THE HEALTH FRONT
The "Tea" in Fertility
Could tea be the magical elixir that boosts fertility? Researchers
from the research division of Kaiser Permanente Medical Care
Program of Northern California looked at the tea-drinking habits of
210 women who were trying to conceive. They found that women
who drank more than half a cup of tea a day nearly doubled their
chance of conceiving. The researchers theorized that some chemical
component other than caffeine may be responsible. For example,
one compound found in tea, polyphenol, is believed to inhibit
chromosomal defects, which may in turn lower the risk of abnormal
embryos. Another group of compounds, called xanthines, may
actually help eggs mature and grow. (Source: American Journal of
