No: Tea is fine to drink in moderation if you enjoy it, but there is no clear evidence based medicine to suggest that drinking tea for its medicinal benefit is real.

Cherries galore: Cherries contain anthocyanins which help to prevent free radical damage to cells. Cherries can decrease levels of uric acid (gout).One study suggested that ingesting montgomery tart cherries helped osteoarthritis pain. One cup of cherries is only 87 calories and has 2.9 grams of fiber. Viva la cherry!
