Health, Myths, Fraud and the Crisis

Certainly too much for me  …

A new study in Japan, appearing in the Annals of Epidemiology, shows that drinking seven cups of green tea a day could cut heart disease risk death by a massive 75%.

The study followed over 12,000 people between the ages of 65 and 84 over five years. In comparison to people who drink less than one cup of green tea per day, those who drink seven show, in addition to the impressive heart benefits, a 55% lower risk of death from other diseases.

For example: Their risk of death from colorecta cancer shows a massive 31% drop.

Now, the researchers say these strong effects may be due to a lifetime of heavy green tea drinking.

But, given all of the other benefits of green tea – protection against Alzheimer’s, lower risk of prostate cancer, and help with weight loss – I say there’s no such thing as “too late” for green tea.

Especially when you look at some recent work at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. There, scientists have reported the cells of regular tea drinkers (an average of 3 cups per day) may actually have a younger biological age than the cells of people who don’t drink tea.
