    Tea intake - uses and abuses

    Several studies on the intake of tea show different merits and demerits of this drink.

    Let us share extracts from this newer study :

    Tea does have various health attributes but it isn't entirely the magic potion it is thought to be. Drinking copious quantities of the beverage with the breakfast or immediately after a meal does more harm than good. Doctors are beginning to correlate the high incidence of anaemia in eastern India with the population's tea drinking habit.

    Analysis of pathology tests done at global diagnostic chain SRL over three years (2012-14) has revealed that a significant number of Indian urban men have abnormal haemoglobin levels usually associated with women. The incidence of low haemoglobin level was highest in the east at 52.4%, followed by 48.6% in north, 39.3% in west and 27% in south. Coffee is more popular beverage in west and south India.

    "Studies show that tea limits the absorption of iron in the diet, also known as non-haem iron. This leads to reduced haemoglobin concentration. Hence, the practice of having tea with breakfast or after major meals like lunch or dinner is not a good idea. Tea is best had between meals," said Leena Chatterjee, director, Fortis SRL Labs & SRL Strategic Initiatives.

    Preventive medicine specialist Debashish Basu agreed. "Tannins in tea bind with iron molecules and prevent their absorption. So, it is better to have tea without milk and with a few drops of lemon. It neutralizes the tannins to an extent. But a majority of tea-drinkers in the east prefer to have it with milk and don't care to refrain from drinking tea before or after meals," said Basu.

    Majority of people who smokes are high on tea intake .

    Per my experience ......if some one smokes 10-15 cig.....consumes 10-15 cups of tea.

    Once I ask someone why tea with puffs of smoke.....I understand why smoke ( its nicotine rush ) ......he stated it is for taste buds .

    Green tea with lemon without sugar milk, between meals, is best for general health, and especially for the heart. Cloves, Cinnamon, Ginger can be added for additional benefits.

    Black tea without sugar and milk will give similar results to a lower degree though, and it is better for your teeth, but its overuse may not be good for those with disposition for throat cancer and acidity.

    Black Coffee without sugar and milk also have similar benefits.

    rather than going for tea/coffee, people can also try drinks of seeweed seed or a drink of afresh (energy supplement from Herbalife). Both these are very herbal and pure if taken in warm water in place of tea/coffee.

    also friends, ginger tea with tulsi (one tea bag) if taken in boiled water with one spoon honey then it reduces bulging belly and keeps your throat healthy. Honey is a good appetizer.

    Ginger tea with honey, if taken regularly then it also evades gastric health issues slowly and gradually.

    Note: Bed-tea should be avoided. Drink a glass of water first as empty stomach, wait, and then have tea. It will be fruitful.
