Dear Valued Subscriber,

Warning: Runners & Green Tea
Another young runner (26 years of
age) dropped dead at a half marathon
in Chicago two weeks ago. As with so
many other similar stories recently,
the autopsy was inconclusive.
I am pleading with you to
notify friends, family, and
coworkers that they must pay strict
attention to nutrition if they are
training for arduous athletic
activities such as a marathon.
While most of us are familiar
with the importance of electrolytes,
the nutrient most important for
cardiac health is magnesium. A
sports drink is not going to come
close to replenishing what is
depleted during training and a
normal work day. I have said for
years that severe magnesium
deficiency could be one of the main
reasons for all these mysterious
deaths because most coroners do not
look for magnesium deficiency.
It is simply heartbreaking to
continually read about these tragic
stories that can be ameliorated with
a proper nutritional approach.
Green Tea Drinkers
The Japanese government has banned
exports of green tea from four
agricultural regions of Japan after
leaves there tested positive for
high levels of radioactive cesium.
The chances are very high that there
will be a shortage of Japanese green
tea within the next few months once
manufacturers supplies are drawn
down, or at the very least, prices
are set to skyrocket.
This is what we suggest until the
issue is resolved:
Temporarily, choose Indian black
teas, such as Assam or
Darjeeling, Ceylon from Sri
Lanka, and Kenyan black or green
tea. While the Chinese produce
the most green tea in the world,
we have always been reluctant to
recommend it because the quality
control is so poor. However,
Chinese Oolong tea should be
If you are taking green tea as a
supplement for a therapeutic
reason, continuing this should
not be an problem. Most quality
manufacturers will test every
raw material batch and will not
accept radioactive green tea.
If in doubt, ask the retailer or
manufacturer from where and when
they received their raw material
to assure that if it came from
Japan, it was harvested before
