ID-100205420Recent small study from Greece showed that consumption of chamomile tea might lower the risk of thyroid cancer. Although the study does not prove chamomile tea prevents the cancer, it supports that Mediterranean diet and tea provide health benefits. Researchers calculated odds of developing thyroid cancer or benign growth based on the tea consumption.  They found out people who drank chamomile tea 2 to 6 times a week were about 70 percent less likely to develop thyroid abnormalities. What are your favorite herbal teas?
