Want to get rid of those extra kilos?

Grab a cup of black tea, say scientists who have found that the beverage may promote weight loss by encouraging growth of metabolism-boosting bacteria.

Everybody is aware about the benefits of green tea, but a recent study has suggested that black tea also may promote weight loss and other health benefits by changing bacteria in the gut.

According to the University of California — Los Angeles Health Sciences researchers, a study on mice showed that black tea alters energy metabolism in the liver by changing the gut metabolites.

The study found that both black and green tea changed the ratio of intestinal bacteria in the animals: The percentage of bacteria associated with obesity decreased, while bacteria associated with lean body mass increased.

The new findings showed that black tea polyphenols, which are too large to be absorbed in the small intestine, stimulate the growth of gut bacterium and the formation of short-chain fatty acids, a type of bacterial metabolites that has been shown to alter the energy metabolism in the liver.

The researchers also collected samples from the mice’s large intestines (to measure bacteria content) and liver tissues (to measure fat deposits).

However, only the mice that consumed black tea extract had an increase in a type of bacteria called Pseudobutyrivibrio, which could help explain the difference between how black tea and green tea change energy metabolism.

Users could simply search for the group on Google they want to join. The latest breach has leaked the phone number of WhatsApp’s web users, according to an report. Let’s take a look at the latest WhatsApp update issue to see if there are things you could do to avoid exposing your details online.

Details of WhatsApp’s Web users have leaked online. According to the a report, the messaging app has allegedly exposed the phone numbers of the web users on Google Search via indexing. This comes days after another report which stated that group chats have been exposed on Google Search.

Security researcher Rajshekhar Rajaria claims that the phone numbers of WhatsApp web users have appeared on Google Search. “If someone is using WhatsApp on a laptop or on an office PC, the mobile numbers are being indexed on Google Search. These are mobile numbers of individual users, not business numbers,” Rajaharia told IANS. The researcher also shared some screenshots with the publication.

WhatsApp, earlier today, announced that it is delaying its new policy by three months. The messaging app is doing so to help everyone understand its principles and the facts. “We’ve heard from so many people how much confusion there is around our recent update. There’s been a lot of misinformation causing concern and we want to help everyone understand our principles and the facts,” it said. The messaging app also announced that no one will have their account suspended or deleted on February 8.
