Regular tea use may enhance your health and maybe prolong your life, according to a study. Green tea has previously been shown to have benefits, and the beverage is thought to reduce inflammation. However, recent research published on Monday in Annals of Internal Medicine raises the possibility that black tea may have comparable benefits.
Over the period of up to 14 years, researchers from the US National Cancer Institute looked at the tea drinking habits of over 500,000 people in the UK while accounting for risk factors including gender, socioeconomic position, smoking, and alcohol use.
When compared to non-tea drinkers, two or more cups per day lower the risk of death from any cause by between 9% and 13%.
According to the Associated Press, the study also showed that there was an association between fatalities brought on by heart disease but not deaths brought on by cancer. According to experts, research that is exclusively observation-based does not give the full picture. Consumers of tea could benefit from extra health benefits in addition to merely drinking tea. They said that the evidence was insufficient to persuade people to change their tea intake.
