Woman Drinks Too Much Tea Developes Rare Bone Disease
A 47 year old Michigan woman drank so much tea it began to affect her in a negative way. For 17 years she was drinking at least a pitcher a day of a special ‘hyper-concentrated brew’ that was made with 100 tea bags. The thick tea made her suffer in her hips and back and caused her to develop a rare bone disease.
Her problems were caused by too much fluoride consumption from all the tea; it’s called ‘skeletal fluorosis’, the New England Journal of Medicine recorded her fluoride levels four times higher than normal. Little did she know tea contains fluoride. The good news is she will make a full recovery now that she’s given up tea and her fluoride levels will gradually even out.
