Heart Disease Prevented With Tea!
Tea Protects Against Heart Disease!
Researchers at the University Medical Center, Utrecht, and the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment in the Netherlands, have just completed an extensive, thirteen year study involving thousands of participants on the effect of tea drinking and heart disease. Their findings are amazing!
The researchers found that people who consumed six or more cups of tea per day had a 36% less chance of coronary disease than those who only drank a cup of tea per day.
They also found that drinking three to six cups of tea per day also lessened the chance of dying from heart disease by 45%.
Coronary Disease: Tea vs. Coffee
The scientists also found that coffee drinking, two to three cups per day, was protective against heart disease--but not drinking less than two cups or more than three.
The difference between coffee and tea is that tea reduces your chances of death from heart disease! As mentioned, those who drank three to six cups of tea per day, lessened their risk of dying from the disease by 45%.
It's obvious that both tea and coffee protect us from coronary disease, but maybe it's good to add a little tea to our diet!
