In a study by the Institute for Natural Resources, Tea was found to contain naturally occuring Flourine which helps to prevent tooth decay. However, black tea was found to have overly high levels of fluorine that could lead to fluorosis, while green teas and oolongs did not exhibit the same effects. Thus olong tea not only prevents tooth decay through its anti-microbial properties, but does so at a moderate rate that does not cause pernicuous damage to our bodies in the process.
