Drink More Green Tea 

A new (very small) study suggests that green tea extract containing epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) may help chronic leukemia patients. The study is a follow-up on in vitro findings in 2004 where the same group found that EGCG kills leukemia cells by interrupting survival signaling.

The n of four is so small as to be nearly meaningless, but it offers a small hope and will hopefully inspire a larger, longer-term trial, leading to good results.
