No, in fact flouride is good for our teeth. The tea plant accumulates fluoride from the soil making a cup of tea a natural source of fluoride. That's a win!
“Is drinking tea bad for our bones?”
No. Turning traditional thinking on it's head, recent research is now suggesting that drinking tea can actually have a positive effect on bones. Studies among older women have found that women who drank four or more cups of tea a day had improved bone density compared to female non-tea drinkers. Plus if you add milk to your tea you are adding calcium, which is important for bone health. Fact: the milk in four cups of tea provides 21% of an adult's daily calcium requirements.
“Does tea contain as much caffeine as coffee?”
Nope. A cup of tea contains about a third of the caffeine in a standard cup of filtered coffee and much less compared to an espresso.
“Does tea count to your 8 cups of fluid a day?”
Tea is basically 99% water. It is a great source of fluid and can count towards your recommended 8 cups (approx 2 litres) of water a day.
Hooray! Tea is officiall good for us!
