TEA DRINKERS ‘LESS LIKELY TO CARRY MRSA’…

Yes, according to the Daily Mail today a recent study has found that people who regularly drink tea and coffee are less likely to carry the potentially fatal MRSA superbug.

Apparently some 1.4 per cent of the population naturally carry MRSA on their skin and noses which is harmless until it gets into cuts and causes infections.

However, the study found that was 50 per cent lower among people who drank tea or coffee.

The US research said that tea and coffee are healthy due to their ‘antimicrobial properties’.

Good news for all us tea and coffee drinkers.
