The benefits of drinking tea are well known.
Recent comprehensive research, on coffee , conducted in US National Cancer Research Institute, Rockville, concluded that drinking four cups of regular caffeine coffee may be associated with reduced risk of cancer, while tea had no such effects !
Other studies report coffee lowers risks of skin cancer , Alzheimer’s and dementia. When blood caffeine levels were above 1200 ng /dl , no patient developed Alzheimer’s as per studies.
