Observational study establishes connection between tea drinking and longevity

Observational study establishes connection between tea drinking and longevity

An observational study that has been conducted in China has led researches to conclude that there might be a close connection between consumption of tea and longevity. The study was conducted from data derived from 100,902 people from China who had not history of deteriorating cardiac health. According to the study men consumed black tea 2.5 times more than woman who in turn preferred herbal tea. The study was conducted over a period of seven years.

"We found that the protective effects of habitual tea consumption were very pronounced and robust across different outcomes for men, but only modest for women.One reason might be that the proportion of habitual tea consumers among men was approximately two and a half [times] as high as that among women. Some 48% of the men in the study were regular tea drinkers, compared with 20% of women," said Dr. DongfengGu from China's National Center for Cardiovascular Disease, Peking Union Medical College and the Chinese Academy of Medical Science.

The study also said that green tea might be a healthier option considering it has a higher proportion of tea polyphenols which are very important for cardiovascular health. Tea is the most popular drink in the world coming second only to water.
