As people may recall, last week there was some research produced that suggested putting milk into tea ruined the benefits gained from the tea itself. Clearly, as an avid tea drinker, I know that this research is patently false.
After all, the caffeine is still there after you put milk in, and that little chemical compound is what matters right? Anyways, it seems I'm not the only person upset by the research's suggestions as this Early Day Motion by Tory MP, Daniel Kawczynski shows,
That this House is always keen to welcome scientific research into the health benefits of food and drink, but is hostile to a recent German study calling into question the application of milk to tea as reducing any health benefits to be had from tea; recognises other reports that counter such claims; and also wishes to raise awareness of the health benefits of adding milk to tea of raising vitamin B intake by up to 30 per cent., folic acid by five per cent. and calcium intake by 21 per cent. more than if the tea were drunk alone.Hear, hear! The great British cuppa deserves championing surely?
