Tea is one of the most ancient and, next to water, the most widely consumed liquid in the world. Tea leaves are primarily manufactured as green or black, white, or oolong. Come and learn what makes one tea different from another. How much should you drink? Are tea capsules beneficial? How does tea promote health and prevent development of chronic diseases?

Dr. Hakim is internationally known for her work on tea and chronic diseases prevention. She has just completed two clinical trials to study the role of tea drinking in reducing the risk of cancer and cardiovascular diseases among smokers and former smokers. She will present the latest data and discuss the impact on human health.
