Give a Green Tea Party
The polyphenols in green tea have long been thought to offer protection from heart disease and cancer. Recently, researchers in Japan conducted a population-based prospective cohort study to determine exactly why green tea consumption affects mortality from these and other diseases.
More than 40,000 Japanese adults (ages 40–79) who had no history of stroke, coronary heart disease or cancer were studied over an 11-year period.
Reporting in the September 13, 2006, issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association, the researchers concluded that “green tea consumption is associated with reduced mortality due to all causes and due to cardiovascular disease, but not with reduced mortality due to cancer.”
