I am regular for tea. I was not knowing this thing. Quite interesting. Thanks for the info. I must take precaution. Is there any relation between tea consumption and blood counts? !!!!........

Doctor Ken

Welcome to our forums. By your title, are we to assume that you are a licensed medical doctor and what field do you practice in and what state are you in? I notice on your profile you do not have that information listed.

It's interesting that you should have brought it up. I've been doing some research and what you have mention does work, to a certain extend.
