About green tea, antioxidants and the Linus Pauling Institute

A while ago, I sent a request to the Linus Pauling Institute (Oregon State University). I asked if a staff-member would like to review a blog-post about green tea and antioxidants that I wrote in March 2014. In the post I quoted several times articles published by the institute, which is a great ressource when it comes to questions about micronutrients.

Here is the first answer that I received:

Dear Dr. Langenbahn,...

We are early in the process of updating our Micronutrient Information Center article on tea. Once we have reviewed the more recent literature in this field (which will take about one month), we would be happy to read your blog post and provide you with some feedback.


About 6 weeks later I received a second email:


We just finished the update, and it is currently under review by an expert. However, the author is now updating our article on flavonoids, and it seems that your blog post is mostly on the antioxidant role of flavonoids, so she could comment better once she's reviewed that literature. I'll be in touch in a couple of weeks.


Isn´t that a great commitment? These people take their job seriously.


I´ll keep you posted,


Dr. Hans-Juergen Langenbahn
