    The actuall point that i've come across is that people who prefer drinking Tea quite often will affect their memory by making it weak.
    I'm saying this because of the following reasons :-
    -> We all know that iron plays an important role for memory and deficiency of iron could cause harm to our memory.
    -> Now, when we drink Tea it restricts Iron present in our diet to be consumed by our body parts specifically our brain.

    So, it finally hampers our memory for sure.
    Thats what i think !!

    I think what he is trying to say is that drinking tea instead of another iron-rich drink just lowers your average levels of iron consumed. Tea (or anything else) cannot deplete iron. Foods/beverages can only supply iron.

    Benefits of Green Tea
    The potential benefits of consuming green tea have, for the most part, not been proven by scientific research, however, some research has credited green tea with the following health benefits.

    Preventing cancer.
    Treating multiple sclerosis.
    Stopping diseases such as Alzheimerís and Parkinsonís.
    Neutralising the spread of free radicals.
    Reducing the negative effects of LDL (bad) cholesterol.
    Raising metabolism.
    Encourages the formation of scabs if applied directly to a wound.

    No, i didn't say that Tea reduces our iron level, i said that it blocks/restricts iron from getting consumed by our body, it happens mostly if Tea is drunk along with some eatables containing iron.

    Ok, I get that, though a blocking effect has the outcome of reducing the assimilated level so I don't think we're differing as such. What I'm asking is where you heard that tea may have such a blocking effect? I've just never heard of it before.

    Think of it as a lid being screwed onto a half empty bottle, it does not reduce the level of fluid in the bottle it just prevents any more from entering, is that clear enough?

    I'm not struggling with the concept of blocking. I'm asking for evidence that tea has this effect.

    I would like to know if you could get more iron in your body by just sucking on a nail, would it be poisonous - would it be absorbed?
