Hot Coffee and Hot Tea May Protect Against MRSA

This is an interesting study that was recently in the Annals of Family Medicine.

Basically, the researchers wanted to find out if there was any association between drinking Hot Tea and/or Hot Coffee and levels of nasal colonization with MRSA.

Their findings do suggest that drinking Hot Coffee and/or Hot Tea may decrease the likelihood of nasal MRSA colonization.

I think it would be premature based on this study to draw anything conclusive, particularly with regards to the “Why” of any such protective effect, but it’s an interesting study nonetheless, and I think one that warrants further investigation.
