SP Health News Article

Her bones were dense but she lost her teeth!

"The patient's intake of brewed tea was astronomically high, said Rao, who learned that the patient had been regularly drinking a pitcher a day of tea made from about 100 to 150 tea bags, emoticon which gave her more than 20 milligrams (mg) of fluoride. She had a fluoride concentration in her blood of 0.43 milligrams per liter, while the normal concentration is less than 0.10 mg per liter, Rao reported."

I can't find the original article. Sorry about that.

    emoticon Whether it is an Urban Legend or not, it is a Great Reminder to practice Moderation in ALL Things!
emoticon There are a lot of Proven Health Benefits to drinking Tea, Green Or Black. But, 100 to 150 of ANYTHING in One Day, is Not A Good Idea, I think!
