Drinking Three or More Cups of Tea a Day Reduces Heart Attack Risk
Sipping tea is far better than drinking water, researchers said.

There are strong grounds to suggest that taking three or more cups of tea can reduce the risk of heart attacks.

According to researcher Dr Carrie Ruxton from King's College London, it is a wrong belief that tea leads to dehydration.

"Tea is better than water as it contains antioxidants. It does not dehydrate you," Mirror quoted Ruxton, as writing in European Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Another positive impact of tea is that it protects from dental plague which is a reason for tooth decay.

Drinking tea also helps in bone strengthening.

However, whether the drink protects from cancer is not very clear.
