Regular Consumption Of Green Tea, Coffee, Reduces Risk Of Stroke

March 14, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A 13-year study that followed more than 83,000 Japanese adults finds that those who drank at least one cup of coffee a day were 20 percent less likely to suffer a stroke. Those who drank two to three cups of green tea had a 14 percent lower risk, and those who drank four cups or more had a 20 percent lower risk. Those who drank at least one cup of coffee and two cups of green tea had a 32 percent lower risk of intracerebral hemorrhage (burst blood vessel in the brain) compared to those who rarely drank either beverage. The researchers surmised that regular tea and coffee drinking benefits cardiovascular health because partly because it keeps blood clots from forming.
