Health Post: Lemon Grass Tea

So, there is a Ben-Gurion University in the Negev region in Israel. The university, formerly named the University of Negev had been renamed after Israel first Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion. I was wondering whether this university exists when I read about researchers there led by Dr. Rivka Ofir and Professor Yakov Weinstein, making a discovery that lemon grass kills cancer cells. Lemon grass, a tall tropical grass with lemon-like odour has long been featured in Thai, Indonesian, Malaysian, Sri Lankan and Indian cooking. The grass is said to contain citral which brings about this action. As it is, to kill cancer cells, one need just to consume a drink containing as little as one gram of lemmon grass. You can start using the stem to make tea now!
