This Brew's for You

Green tea gets a lot of love around here, but lately, we've
been steeping chamomile. The darling buds of this sleep-
inducing flower are a top source of the cancer fighting
antioxidant apigenin. New research in Proceedings of the
National Academy of Sciences spotlights apigenin's heroic
role: It attaches to key proteins and helps reprogram cancer
cells, so they lose the power to prevent their own death.
Tea's on!
