Drinking 4 cups of tea daily may reduce type 2 diabetes risk: Study
Moderate use of black, green, or Oolong tea is associated with a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to the study of over 1 million adults from eight countries.
Researchers conducted a cohort study and a dose-response meta-analysis to better define the relationship between tea consumption and future T2DM risk, ANI reported.
When compared with adults who didn't drink tea, those who drank 1-3 cups daily lowered their risk of T2D by 4%, while those who consumed at least 4 cups every day reduced their risk by 17%.
The meta-analysis found a linear association between tea drinking and T2D risk, with each cup of tea consumed per day reducing the risk of developing T2D by around 1%.
Despite the important findings, the authors note that the study is observational and cannot prove that drinking tea reduced the risk of T2D, but suggests that it is likely to contribute.
