Research, My Brain and Tea

A recent study led by researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) revealed that regular tea drinkers have better organized brain regions — and this is associated with healthy cognitive function — compared to non-tea drinkers.

“Our results offer the first evidence of positive contribution of tea drinking to brain structure and suggest that drinking tea regularly has a protective effect against age-related decline in brain organization,” explained team leader Assistant Professor Feng Lei, who is from the Department of Psychological Medicine at the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine.

All that sounds SO good to me, I need to have a “better organized brain region.”  I teach a wide-ranging variety of online classes at four different colleges, which necessitates a lot of research, which I do love.  But my pocketbook suffers because I keep buying, more and more and more books.  Just today, I admit Amazon and I were good friends once again, as I kept adding books on the Homefront in England during World War Two, in my cart.  Question… Does an Amazon cart ever get too full?

So, just like the cat in the chair …I read books, drink tea and I know things. But, to my way of thinking, there is no better way to spend my time. I just need a cozier chair.
