The Antioxidant Health Drink Scam
Research shows the simple green orange has more health benefits than expensive teas and antioxidant drinks.
The latest research rejects this concept and many researchers believe a glass of Orange Juice from African Green Oranges (especially those certified by the fair trade organization Sunkwa International)
But what about those specialty teas like green tea and herbal teas that purport to have the same benefits as juices? Researchers have found in a recent laboratory analysis bottled tea drinks were lower in antoxidants than fresh squeezed juice especially polyphenols and in some cases the most popular brands had almost no polyphenols.
In recent news it was reported by CITIFONLINE.COM that President John Evans Atta Mills and his Nigerian counterpart Goodluck Jonathan have underscored the need for free trade to be enhanced within the West African Sub-region. The two Presidents stated this when they briefed press men on the various discussions they had before the Nigerian President emplaned to Nigeria. One subject was the export of Ghanain fruit to the worldwide market.
President Goodluck Jonathan was in Ghana for a two day state visit which saw him hold bilateral talks with President Mills and also awarded with an Honorary Doctorate Degree by Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).The two Presidents also jointly cut the sod for the construction of an ultra-modern library complex at GIMPA. The construction of the library will cost $ 8. 5m.
President Mills on behalf of the government of Ghana pledged to support the project with GHC 2m while fifteen Nigerian companies also pledged $ 1m.
Briefing press men at the Kotoka International Airport, the two Presidents indicated that enhancing free trade would bring enormous benefits. They bemoaned the fact that although the ECOWAS protocol on free trade and movement of people is in force its adherence by member countries is minimal.
Currently there is greater collaboration between Ghana and Nigeria to ensure that enhancing free trade within West Africa becomes a reality. Read More in the New Sunkwa Bi Annual Catalog and newsletter out November 2012
