This is good news to all the tea drinkers out there and more so to the patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and their carers. Developing a medicinal tea as treatment for Alzheimer’s disease for which there is no cure found yet, sounds very interesting.

Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

Therefore the more time you lose in getting medical attention will widen the area of muscle which is going to die due to the lack of blood supply for the hearts function.
