Tea Drinking Boosts Risk Of Rheumatoid Arthritis In Women

June 18, 2010: 11:45 PM EST
U.S. researchers who studied health and diet data on more than 76,000 women aged 50-79 over 15 years found a correlation between rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and tea drinking, but not coffee drinking. Women who drank any amount of tea each day increased their risk for RA, and those who drank more than four cups of tea a day significantly increased the risk compared to women who drank no tea at all. No such correlation was found for coffee drinking, however. “This does make us wonder what it is in tea, or in the method of preparation of tea, that causes the significant increase in risk of developing RA,” the researchers said.
