Contrary to everything I’ve read in the past, a new study has shown that female tea drinkers are more likely to get Rheumatoid Arthritis than non-tea-drinkers. In fact, drinking any tea at all leaves you 40% more likely to get RA, and if you drink around 4 cups a day (like me) you are 78% more likely to get RA. What kind of craziness is that? For more info, go here (link takes you to uk.news.yahoo.com). I’ll update when I find something more scientific.
