Study Finds, Tea, Coffee Drinkers Having Lesser Heart Disease Risk

A new research has found the tea and coffee drinkers have less chances of dying from heart disease as compared to the people who do not drink tea or coffee at all.

The finding was concluded after observation of more than 37,000 people in The Netherlands for 13 years. This time span has credited the study as the longest and largest study ever conducted to adjudge the health effects of coffee and tea drinking.

In the study it has been found that people drinking three to six cups of tea per day had a 45% less probability of death from heart disease as compared to the people who drank less than one cup of tea every day.

Also, the findings suggest that having more than six cups of tea a day was lowered the risk of heart diseases by 36%, against the tea coffee abstainers.

For the people drinking more than two but less than four cups of coffee a day, the heart disease risk is less than 20%, as compared to those drinking more or less coffee.

People drinking moderate coffee were recorded having only slight, but no noticeable reduction in death from the heart disease.

Lead researcher of the study, T. van der Schouw, PhD, said that the findings were same even though other lifestyle factors were also taken into consideration during the research.
