Live long with Green tea!!

According to a Japanese study, there has been a significant reduction in the risk of deaths from several diseases, due to drinking of green tea//.

A 25 % reduction in the risk of fatal cardiovascular disease was reported in this study conducted on more than 40,000 people. However, British heart experts feel that these benefits may be due to the whole diet of the Japanese that is much healthier than the diet in the west.

The findings of this study are published in the Sept. 13 issue of Journal of the American Medical Association. Next to water, tea is the largely consumed drink in the world. Worldwide around 3 billion kilograms of tea is produced annually. The wide-ranging health benefits of green tea have been revealed by various studies conducted in laboratories and on animals.

The research team from Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan started the study in 1994, focusing on how man could benefit from green tea. Green tea is largely consumed in north-eastern Japan. The researchers studied the data on 40,530 healthy adults aged 40 to 79 in this region.

Green tea is consumed by nearly 80% of the people here with over 50% consuming three or more cups each day. This study was conducted for 11 years (1995-2005), until then 4, 209 people had died from all causes. In search of specific reasons for death, the researchers scrutinized 7 years’ data (1995-2001). Cardiovascular disease (CVD) was the cause of 892 deaths and cancer of 1,134 deaths, during that period.

In the 11-year study, a 16% reduction in risk of dying from any cause was noted in people who consumed 5 or more cups of green tea a day than those who took less than a cup a day. Also, a 26% reduction in risk of dying from CVD was noted. However, there was no major link between green tea consumption and death from cancer.

According to the study, women seem to be more benefited from the green tea than men. A 31% reduction of risk of death from C
