(March 18, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Japan – Drinking green tea and coffee may lower risk of stroke, according to a report published in Stroke. Researchers followed over 83,000 Japanese adults. Participants were asked about their green tea or coffee consumption and followed for an average of 13 years. Results showed that those drank one cup of coffee a day had a 20% reduced risk of stroke when compared to those who rarely drank it. Those who drank 2-3 cups of green tea a day had a 14% reduced risk of stroke, while those who had at least 4 cups were at 20% reduced risk. Those who drank one cup of coffee and 2 cups of green tea per day had a 32% reduced risk of intracerebral hemorrhage.
