The practice of brewing leaves appears to go back at least 5,000 years, but its actual origins are hazy. The most persistent legend concerns a Chinese emperor who drank a bowl of hot water that was boiled for sanitary purposes. He was in his garden when a few leaves fell into his bowl, surprising him with the resulting pleasant flavor.
But a great deal of recent research has found there’s far more to be found in a cup of tea than a soothing drink.

That’s because, once it was discovered that most of the serious illnesses and deaths were concentrated in those who are older, kids seemed to have been forgotten, except for the impact on their schooling.
But our concierge doctors in Jupiter, Florida, have been seeing more studies and reports that have begun to focus on children. We want to pass along the newest information in this area.
We tend to think of our homes as our safe place. But according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC), accidental poisoning is the leading cause of injury-type deaths in the U.S., and 92 percent of those occur in the home.
