A cup of Green keeps the dentist away?

Recently, a study was released discussing the dental advantages of drinking green tea. Of course, it is assumed that the tea would be drank without sugar, as sugar has reverse effects on teeth. The researchers found out that green tea contains antimicrobial molecules called catechins. These catechins, which are commonly known as active antioxidants can possibly kills or inhibits the growth of microorganisms in your mouth, such as some forms of oral bacteria. This research is ongoing at Columbia University in New York City, by Alfredo Morabia. Working with another Researcher from Japan, they have looked at 25,000 japanese men and women ranging in age from 40 to 64. Through looking at all of these people, they found that if a person drinks at least one cup of Green Tea (with no added sugar), a person is 19 percent less likely to have fewer than 20 teeth as they age versus non green tea drinkers. With this information, it is concluded that drinking green tea strengthens the teeth and can also aid in controlling oral bacteria.

Of course, green tea is not exclusively drank for its health benefits, as many people drink tea simply because they enjoy tea. Some other Green tea contains many strong antioxidants, which fights against the free radicals in the body, which are Reactive molecules that can damage tissue and other things in the body. For people who just drink tea to enjoy the process of steeping,sipping and conversing, these new studies featuring teas benefits are simply an added extra treat on top of their already wonderful tea experience.
