Studies show health benefits of warm drinks

(WTVM) -

Parts of western Georgia got a bit of a chilly over the weekend, and as we get closer to winter, more cold weather is certain to come.

After being outside in chilly weather, a hot cup of green tea will not only warm you up, but it also prevents cancer and heart disease according to scientists.

A good cup of coffee in moderation can also be good for you. Recent Harvard studies found that coffee may reduce the development of gallstones, colon cancer and improve your memory
