Can tea prevent cancer o.O?
I was reading an interesting article on WebMD today (link), according to which tea contains 8 to 10 times as many different antioxidants as fruits and veggies. I knew that tea had a lot of antioxidants, but never that it might be that much. That same article also talks about more than 10 different health benefits from drinking tea. I won't go into all of them but I found a few worth mentioning:
1. "Tea-drinking rats have less cancer." This is definitely my favorite quote from the article. I wonder what kind of tea rats prefer...green? Black? Or maybe a medium body flavored white tea with a lightly vegetative aroma and a lingering fresh aftertaste? ...Probably the third one.
2. Tea can help fight bad breath. This was a new one for me, I had no idea.
3. On top of having a lower chance for a heart attack, tea drinkers also recover from heart attacks faster.
Once again, thank you everyone who has backed us so far and remember to tell your friends!
