There was me thinking tea was good for you. Just goes to show that anything in excess could be bad.



A case study reported in the March 21 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine shows how habitually drinking an extreme form of highly concentrated tea over almost 20 years created a hard-to-diagnose case of severe bone damage in a 47-year-old woman.




The researchers suspected the woman had skeletal fluorosis, a bone disease caused by consuming too much fluoride (a mineral found in tea as well as drinking water). The patient's blood levels of fluoride were four times higher than what would be considered normal, the researchers said.

This Detroit woman also had to have all her teeth extracted due to brittleness.

There it is, that nasty fluoride again. They still insist on having it in the water supply here in Ireland.

I drink tea daily. Organic black, earl gray and green, and will continue to do so.

Leave the moderating to the moderators.
Notice you never mentioned the correct way,that's if you are even right.
O.p. An interesting article.All her teeth had to be removed due to being brittle!Just goes to show that all that fluride did the opposite of keep her teeth healthy.

Ah okay, I thought it would be okay as I had posted the link to the article. Well I will familiarize myself with the regulations again.

If this was true then I'd be a pile of walking flesh...for years.

But then again I'm healthy, whole and complete.

But dang, 200 bags of tea per day. That's a serious tea jones. I average maybe four cups a day.

Yerba Mate is my tea of choice. It's nutritious and delicious!
Of course I only use spring water or britta water for my tea and coffee.

I heard that fluoride is where it's at but I choose not to be like everyone else. Call me crazy

It doesn't help when you make tea out of fluoridated water either. Same with coffee. Too much fluoride is no good for anyone and it seems that there have been a lot more negative effects from fluoride since they started fluoridating water and using it to stop oxidation and sprouting of veggies. Get that crap out of the water.

Title should say "One person may have got Unusual Bone Disease from drinking an extreme amount of tea".

You take anything in extreme amounts and you will get ill..even water.

MMMMHM!
I drink waaaay too much coffee and tea throughout the day, really.
More than should be allowed in a free society.

I imagine this..."study" was spearheaded by the makers of soft drinks.
Just my opinion.

i know all tea really racks my system, and that it puts my fibromialgia on the freak


i would think that the fluoride would really be the culprit and not so much the tea


i have a 300ft well i pump from, so no city water in my urinary tract

The effect you speak of just might be the anti-oxidants going to work.
Similar to a junkie coming clean.

An extreme form of highly concentrated tea....

That alone sounds rare.
Tetley Tea is strong enough, who needs extreme and concentrated?

Everything in moderation.
Tea is full of antioxidants, as is coffee, and also cocoa.
If we vary our hot beverage habits, it's hard to get too much of one thing

Fluoride is naturally found in water and food. Just saying. That's only one reason why it's absurd to fortify water with the poison.
