Women's Wednesday- Girls, have more tea please!
For this women's Wednesday I wanted to share with you new benefits that have been credited to female tea regular users. According to GEN (Genetic, Engineering, and Biotechnology News) "Female Tea Drinkers See Epigenetic Changes in Cancer and Hormone Genes" What does this mean?
