Green tea prolongs life and prevents cardiovascular diseases


January 10, Fineko/ Green tea helps protect against cardiovascular diseases, which are one of the main causes of death worldwide, and thereby prolong life, ABC.AZ reports with reference to Chinese scientists.

More than 100,000 people who have had cancer, heart attack or stroke took part in the experiment. They were divided into two groups: some drank tea at least three times a week, and some did not.

A seven-year study showed that the risk of death of people from the first group from a heart attack or stroke decreased by 20%, as well as the probability of making such diagnoses.

In addition, the risk of death from other causes also decreased by 15%. It also turned out that 50-year-old participants in the experiment who regularly drank green tea had cardiovascular diseases almost a year and a half later than those who did not drink this drink.
