The Health Benefits of National Iced Tea Month

(Melinda Johnson, MS, RD, U.S. News & World Report) Baby, it's hot outside! It's the perfect weather for the official drink of June: iced tea. In honor of National Iced Tea Month, here are some healthy tea tidbits to brew on as you reach for a tall, cool one.
Tea may help fight cancer…
Tea is kind to teeth…
Tea drinkers may have lower rates of Type 2 diabetes…
Tea is good for your brain…
Tea is easy on your wallet…
There are two potential downsides to adding tea to your beverage rotation: The added calories from sweeteners and the caffeine. Learning to enjoy your tea unsweetened, drinking no more than about 4 cups a day and perhaps avoiding tea in the evening so the caffeine doesn't interfere with your sleep will help prevent these pitfalls.
