We have often talked about the health benefits of green tea. Now they are saying that drinking green tea might “reduce the risk of becoming infected by HIV, and could also slow down the spread of HIV.” Wow! That is quite an assertion. Of course there are better ways of avoiding HIV infection, but if green tea helps, great. I wouldn’t rely on it working, though. HIV is still a problem in China where they presumably drink a lot of green tea.
