(Newser) – Care for a spot of type 2 diabetes, luv? No? Then you might want to consider forming a tea habit. A new study analyzing data from 50 countries has concluded that the countries that drank the most black tea also had the lowest type 2 diabetes rates, and lower obesity levels to boot, the Daily Mail reports. The study is consistent with previous findings suggesting such a link, a spokesman for the British Medical Journal said, and hence provides "valuable additional scientific information at the global level."
