Tea cerebrovascular stroke research
Many studies have shown that people who drink at least 5 cups of either black or green tea show reduced risk of strokes.
Now a new statistical evaluation of several studies (called a meta-analysis) finds that only 3 cups of either black or green tea daily may also reduce the risk of strokes.
Reviewing nine studies covering 194,965 people, researchers found that, regardless of national origin, people who drank at least 3 cups of tea daily had 21% reduced risk of stroke compared to those who drank less than one cup daily (Arab L, Green and black tea consumption and risk of stroke. A meta-analysis, Stroke, February 2009).
Cerebrovascular strokes are still the third leading cause of death in industrialized nations.
Strokes happen suddenly with several warning signs. The best chances of recovery occur with immediate hospitalization.
