Coffee vs Tea
There have been many health studies and reports completed on coffee versus tea, and while I’m going to review a few of the benefits today, it is certainly a matter of preference, which one you prefer to drink. I definitely like tea more than coffee but of course, I enjoy a good flavored cup of coffee once in a while. And when I say once in a while, I really mean like 1-2x a week, my favorite is this World Market Hazelnut. It’s good hot or iced, especially topped with this caramel. And while it’s a favorite, this week and for the next few I’m sticking to tea, like chamomile especially since I’m in the middle of teeth whitening. Anyway, here are the details:
Drinking coffee over a long period of time may prevent the risk of a heart attack.
Coffee drinkers are less likely to have type 2 diabetes or dementia.
Coffee drinkers are less likely to have certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes.
Coffee antioxidants help prevent liver disease.
Tea research has shown a higher immune system activity in the blood.
Tea contains fluoride and tannins that may keep plaque at bay.
Tea increases metabolic rate, which helps to burn 70 to 80 additional calories per day.
