drinking tea prevents glaucoma

Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness. And simple cup of tea may change that.

This study looked at 1,678 people to see what effect coffee, soft drinks, iced tea and hot tea had on glaucoma.

Coffee, iced tea and soft drinks had no benefit for glaucoma. But hot tea did. People who drank at least one cup of hot tea a day had an incredible 74% decreased chance of developing glaucoma compared to people who drank no tea. That number not only looks significant: it is. The decrease in risk was statistically significant.

Other recent research has pointed to surprising new dietary, herbal and lifestyle help for glaucoma.
