Tea & Arthritis

Quoted from wikipedia, tea is a product of agricultural leaves. And because of such amazing product, many producers use it to manufacture and modify even greater teas. Today, various kind of teas can be seen anywhere in the world, we have green tea, Chinese tea and many many more.

But there was a study in United States recently, claiming that women who consume tea will have greater risks in getting Rheumatoid Arthritis. Although that was the outcome of study, but there is no correlation between coffee consumption and Rheumatoid Arthritis occurrence.

The purpose of the study was originally to determine whether tea or coffee consumption or the method of preparation of the drinks was associated with an increased risk of Rheumatoid Arthritis, in order to see whether there are any differences in results between tea and coffee drinkers.

According to the study, any amount of tea consumption will carry a significant risk in Rheumatoid Arthritis development. At least 4 cups or more of tea consumed by women nowadays in one day would increase risk of developing Rheumatoid Arthritis compared to those who drank none at all.

So instead of consuming tea in order to have a break, consume milk, especially GTF Milk instead, so that you could get the most benefits from the product, and guarantee great health in your lives.
