Drinking Coffee Tea Lowers MRSA Risk, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a type of bacterial infection that is resistant to traditional antibiotics. A new study found that coffee and tea consumption could reduce a person’s risk of contracting MRSA by up to 67 percent, according to ABC News.
The Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston and included 5555 participants conducted the study. According to ABC News, 60.8 percent of them reportedly were drinking coffee in the last month, while 48.6 percent drank hot tea.
1.4 percent of the participants, two years or more, led to MRSA in the nose, according to ABC News. The study also found a lower risk of MRSA infections in coffee drinkers by 50 percent, but those who drank both beverages had a 67 percent decrease.
Researchers at the University of South Carolina began the study after the data above show that coffee and tea have antimicrobial properties. However, the effects were studied in topical form. The new study took the data a step further to investigate whether domestic consumption can have similar effects.
