Tea and coffee protects against heart disease: study

More than six cups of tea a day cuts risk by one-third


 

According to a 13-year study of over 40,000 people from the Netherlands, tea and coffee could offer protection against heart disease. In the study, those who drank over six cups of tea a day saw their risk go down by one-third, while two to four coffees a day also reduced risk. Protective effect stopped with more than four cups a day, but people who drank that much weren’t more likely to die from other causes like stroke and cancer, the BBC reports. Even so, healthy lifestyle matters most, they said.

  1. Does this mean that if you drink a coffee with every cigarette, you come out even?

    • Cigarette, doughnut, cinnamon roll – guilt free, baby!

  2. I look forward to the positive health benefits of cream and sugar as well.

  3. Might I suggest a splash of Brandy also ? (for medicinal purposes only of course.)

  4. who the hell drinks 6 cups of tea per day ?

    • Me.

    • I used to drink at least 6 cups of coffee &/or tea a day, but haven't for about 2 years now. Heh, I am noticeably (a touch, but still noticeably) mellower– and don't have to run to the loo as frequenlty either!
