Royal milk tea has been linked to a lower risk of colorectal cancer, but some experts are worried about its long-term health effects.
The tea is made from water that is steeped in milk fat and milk protein, and the fat and protein is digested by the colon and used as a source of energy.
But research on its long term health effects has been mixed.
It’s been suggested that drinking royal milk could be linked to the development of cancer and the progression of other illnesses such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
“It is unclear whether drinking royal milkshakes is associated with an increased risk of colon cancer, particularly if they’re eaten alongside other foods that might be high in saturated fat and sugar,” Dr. John V. D’Agostino, a professor of nutrition and food science at the University of California, San Diego, told the New York Times.
“I have no data to support that,” he added.
Some experts have speculated that the tea could be associated with a lower intake of healthy fats.
“If you’re eating a lot of fat and not getting enough nutrients, then you can get saturated fats into your bloodstream and you can cause a lot more disease,” Dr D’Amore told ABC News.
But it’s not clear whether these findings are backed up by other studies.
Dr D”Amore and colleagues recently published a meta-analysis that included more than 6,500 people with colorecctal and pancreatic cancer who were followed over a five-year period, concluding that the risk of developing the disease was low but that it wasn’t associated with consumption of royal milk.
It may be that royal milk drinks aren’t actually the healthiest option for people who are trying to lose weight. “
We don’t know what other things people eat and what they drink might be causing these effects,” Dr V”Abetter said.
“But it’s a really important thing for people to eat.””
You could put this on the menu, and then you could eat a lot less of it,” Dr O’Toole said.
