Tea Is Healthy...Except When It's Not
So there's good news and there's bad news. Which do you want first?
Let's start with the good news. A cup of green tea daily may help prevent gum disease, say a bunch of grant money recipients in Japan. More of that here.
However, according to a group of Iranian researchers, who weighed in with their thoughts recently, drinking steaming hot tea may be linked to an increased risk of cancer of the esophagus.
As always, in such potentially befuddling situations, I encourage you to stop worrying about your gums and esophagus and have a cup of tea.
