5 Dangers That Lurk Behind the Fresh Iced Tea


In the midst of a hot and hot day, a glass of iced fresh sweet tea can definitely refresh a dry throat.

Especially when a glass of sweet iced tea is mixed with slices of lemon or fresh fruit. Although drinking iced tea is indeed refreshing and tea also has a variety of positive benefits for health, drinking ice tea or regular iced tea also presents its own risks. But how much ice tea is considered bad for health?

There are several problems that may arise when drinking too much ice tea.

1. Diabetes
Sweet ice tea certainly contains sugar to give it a sweet taste. This sweet taste in sweet ice tea will refresh and add energy. But be careful, the sugar content that is too high in sugar will put you at risk of diabetes.

2. Kidney stones and kidney problems

Citing Elite Readers, a man is reported to drink at least 16 glasses of black ice tea every day. He also experienced many negative effects on his health, especially in matters of kidney health.

"There is only one explanation that makes sense," said Umbar Ghaffar, a doctor from Medical Sciences in Little Rock, Arkansas, quoted from CBS News.

He revealed that black tea does have many health benefits but also has a chemical compound called oxalate which can make kidney failure if consumed in excessive amounts.

3. Cardiovascular disease
Don't forget that iced tea, especially black tea, contains caffeine. Drinking too much tea and caffeine will potentially cause cardiovascular problems.

"All black tea contains caffeine, this is good to consume if you have high blood pressure or a fast heart rate. This will make it worse," said Suzanne Steinbaum, director of the women's health institution in Lenox Hill Hispotal, New York to Everyday Health.

4. Obesity
High sugar content is also dangerous for your weight. Famous sweet tea brands usually have 250 calories.

5. Stroke
Who would have thought that drinking sweet iced tea could risk causing a stroke. This happens because iced tea can increase the amount of Triglyceride in the body.
