Tea and coffee protects against heart disease: study

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

by

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.
