Green tea has been grown since ancient times, making a traditional tea that originated in China and has become a popular brew in Japan and China. Green tea leaves contain antioxidants and flavonoids. The compounds in green tea are known to be very effective in healing, consisting of EGCG (epigallocatechin-gallate) which is capable of increasing T-Cells that are beneficial in preventing autoimmune diseases. In addition, other healing elements include fluoride, catechins, and tannins.
The really good news about these compounds is that the catechins in the green tea have demonstrated solid anti-influenza capabilities. “A study conducted on chickens by Lee HJ et al., 2012 showed that adding 10 g/kg of green tea to diet of chickens showed significant antiviral protection against avian influenza.”*

Poultry World reports January 21, 2019, that there have been 300 cases confirmed of the deadly Newcastle Disease in California since May 2018. Utah has recently first confirmed its first case of Newcastle disease, which is believed to be linked to birds shipped from California.

Newcastle disease is a highly contagious viral disease that affects respiratory, digestive, and nervous systems. It can be fatal up to 100% of the time. Once inflicted chickens will show symptoms of swollen eyes, purplish color wattles, and comb, severe discharge of liquid from beak and nostrils, twisting of head and neck, loss of appetite, loose droppings, and sudden death. The disease is spread by body fluids from direct contact between chickens, cracked eggs, and droppings. In addition, humans can easily spread the disease via clothing and shoes by coming in contact with an environment that has chickens inflicted. There is no cure, antibiotics will only treat secondary infections. It can infect all birds, with a high mortality rate for chickens, while other other types of birds will show no symptoms and yet be carriers of the deadly disease. More on Newcastle Disease
