Hi all. Found this article on Yahoo, about green tea being a great way to fight off cancer cells and keep them from reproducing. Also has fewer side effects and less damage to healthy cells than Methotrexate. I won't post the whole article here, because it's rather long. Just follow the link.

WOW that was very interesting! So does this mean that just as green tea is good in fighting off certain cancer cells, it is just as affective with fighting lupus?

As far I can tell, it wouldn't "fight off Lupus", really, but it might really help if, say, a Lupus patient started to develop cancerous or pre-cancerous growths in one or more organs.

Perhaps they should do a study on its effects on systemic disease patients, hmm?
