Green Tea/Coffee May Reduce Stroke Risk

Posted: 07.18.2013

Drinking green tea or coffee may help lower the risk of stroke.  A recent study looked at data on 83,000 men and women 45 to 74 years old and found that during the 13 year follow-up, those who drank 2-3 cups of green tea a day had a 14% lower risk.  Those who drank 4 cups reduced their risk by 20%.  It also found those who drank at least one cup of coffee a day had a 20% reduced risk.  Findings held even after researches accounted for gender, age, smoking, alcohol use, weight, diet and exercise.  Researches think this effect might be due to the anti-clotting properties of these drinks.
