Tea and Your Teeth

Here I have been posting all about tea and its health benefits for the metabolism, the heart, cholesterol, etc. But did you know there may also be a connection between tea and your teeth?

The Journal of the American College of Nutrition reported a finding that drinking tea may protect against dental caries, and even osteoporosis. Why? Tea contains fluoride. That explains the teeth, but what about the bones? That came from a British study of women 65 to 76, and found that the women who drank tea had a greater bone density than those who didn't drink tea.

Do I still have to try to convince you of the wonders of tea?

Today's mug and tea are:

English Breakfast Tea. Well, the study was done with British women, after all, so why not?
