On behalf of International Society of Antioxidants in Nutrition and Health (ISANH), we are pleased to announce you the organisation of the 5th World Congress on Tea & Health: Recent Clinical Advances & Applications as Medicalized Food & Beverages. This conference will be held in Berlin on October 24 & 25, 2013 .
After the success of the four past conferences, the Scientific Committee decided to organize the fifth edition to highlight the recent advances and clinical applications of green tea and green tea extracts in various pathologies and discuss about the potential applications of tea and green tea as medicalized food.
During Tea & Health 2013, the Scientific Committee will allocate significant time to discuss the latest advances related scientific and clinical studies concerning tea and its consumption.
Following the success of the four conferences on Tea & Health, Dr Edeas, chairman of ISANH, decided to set up the Task Force for Green Tea (TFGT) in 2012. The aim of this consortium is to gather academics and industrials to discuss last advances on green tea applications in health and all problems related to regulation and claims concerning green tea uses in Europe. Thanks to the expertise and the credibility of all TFGT's members, the group is able to inform consumers about green tea effects on health and highlight the limit of green tea uses in some pathology.
TFGT gathers industrials and academics involved in all steps of the Green Tea chain to provide relevant studies, opinion and applications. TFGT is currently studying the opportunity to take part in a FP7 project, an European initiative to provide financial aids to promote clinical studies.
The aim of Tea and Health 2013 is to provide answers and to give a future vision of how Tea Polyphenols can enhance human nutrition and help in the prevention and treatment (tea as promising drugs) of many chronic diseases.
