Maybe the Brits were on to something...

Researchers say drinking some types of teas may have the same effect on the brain s drugs used to treat Alzheimer's disease.

Scientists in London studied green and black tea and found both types inhibited the activity of enzymes in the brain associated with the development of Alzheimer's.

They hope to learn which components of tea inhibit the enzyme activity to develop a medicine to treat the disease.
