Drinking green tea while on antibiotics for superbugs like MRSA might help reduce the bacteria's resistance to such drugs.

The study from Egypt finds green tea made antibiotics up to three times more effective in many types of bacteria.

Green tea also made about 20% of drug–resistant bacteria , the so–called "superbugs", more susceptible to antibiotics.
