NEWS RELEASE Pursuant to the February 23, 2012 Memorandum Decision of the United States District Court, the FDA has officially allowed the first qualified green tea health claim as follows: "Green tea may reduce the risk of breast or prostate cancer although the FDA has concluded that there is very little scientific evidence for this claim." For more information see:

Dr. Lee announced on April 14, 2014 that due to heavy commitments in his molecular diagnostic work, especially in developing and implementing the reliable DNA tests for Lyme disease and Borrelia miyamotoi infections (see references 1-10 below), he is unable to continue supplying the TeaforHealth green tea through this website to the public. Effective April 15, 2014, we will cease to accept orders for our green tea. We thank all of our customers for their past trusted supports and the people interested in the science of drinking green tea for health maintenance may continue to consult the educational website

We wish you all the best,

Dr. Lee’s TeaforHealth Group
