Based on the latest research, tea or coffee? Who say’s coffee’s healthier??? Who says tea??? Tea is much healthier.

Black versus green? Who says black??? Who says green??? Green tea is the best, and the best form of green tea is actually called white tea, so white tea is the best of the best.

    Hi Dr. Greger,
       Have there been any studies showing the health consequences of drinking decaf tea vs regular tea?  Thanks for your time and keep up the enlightening work!

    What about roasted grain beverages (like Teechino, Inka, and Genmaicha)? Do these coffee alternatives offer any health benefits or risks?

    Inka lists two ingredients: roasted barley and rye. Teechino French Roast consists of: organic carob, organic barley, organic chicory, organic ramon nuts, and natural coffee flavor (whatever that is). Genmaicha is green tea with roasted brown rice.

    Do you think acrylamide found in dark-colored baked, roasted and fried high-carbohydrate foods (like coffee, bbq meats, roasted nuts, and these roasted grain beverages) is something to be concerned about?
