From Brooklyn, New York, USA:

I recently began to drink tea instead of coffee because I heard it's better and provides a bigger boost from the caffeine. I like it so much that I drink about four to six cups a day. Is there any truth to the statement that "Drinking tea will cause diabetes"?


No truth to it.
