Watch - Black tea may lower risk of diabetes

From Switzerland - Black tea drinkers may be at reduced risk of diabetes, according to a report published in BMJ Open.

Researchers reviewed data on black tea consumption in 50 countries across every continent, sales data that was collected by an independent marketing company. They also reviewed data from the WHO on those same countries, analyzing rates of respiratory, infectious, and heart diseases, cancer and diabetes. Using statistical analysis, researchers were able to determine the effect of black tea consumption on these health conditions.

Results showed that countries that consumed the most black tea also had the lowest rates of type 2 diabetes. This association was not seen for any of the other health conditions
