3 cups of tea a day can halve diabetes risk Dutch researchers

ISLAMABAD: Intake of at least three cups of tea every day can reduce the risk of diabetes by almost 50 percent, a new study states. Researchers studied more than 40,000 people whose consumption of tea was monitored for 10 years, Health News reported. After analyses, scientists discovered that chemicals found in all types of tea cut the dangers of developing type 2-diabetes by 42 percent. Drinking more than three cups did not reduce the risk any further. The study was carried out by a team of Dutch researchers from the University Medical Centre in Utrecht. "Consumption of at least three cups of tea or coffee was associated with a lowered risk of type 2 diabetes. Blood pressure and intake of magnesium, potassium and caffeine did not explain these associations," the team concluded. The beneficial effects in tea were probably explained by "flavonoidantioxidants", it said. app
