It appears that the civilized habit of taking milk with our tea is buggering up the British national drink’s health benefits.
Research has shown tea improves blood flow and the ability of arteries to relax, but scienticians from Germany have discovered that milk eliminates the benefit.
The research team: “discovered that proteins called caseins in milk decrease the amount of compounds in tea known as catechins which increase its protection against heart disease.”
We are suspicious, if only because the national drink in Germany is beer.
No word on if lemon is still acceptable.
