Drinking black tea may help protect against type 2 diabetes, but more study is needed to confirm an association. When researchers analyzed data from 50 countries, they found that the rate of diabetes was lowest in countries where people drank the most black tea. Type 2 diabetes rates have skyrocketed worldwide in recent decades. It's projected that by 2030 there will be more than 900 million people across the globe with diabetes or with a high risk for developing it.
