According to Japan’s Sankei Shimbun, the research team at the National Cancer Research Center and the National Center for Circulatory Disease Research in Japan announced that according to their research, people who regularly drink green tea and coffee have a stroke compared with those who do not drink. The probability is 20% lower. Green tea has the effect of protecting blood vessels, and coffee has the effect of improving blood sugar levels, thus reducing the possibility of stroke.
From the second half of the 1990s, the research team tracked and surveyed about 82,000 men and women aged 45-74 living in the northeast to Okinawa in an average of 13 years. During the investigation, a total of 3,425 people suffered from cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral infarction, subarachnoid hemorrhage and other diseases known as stroke.
At the beginning of the follow-up investigation, the investigators divided the respondents into “no green tea at all”, “1-2 drinks a week”, “3-6 times a week”, “1 cup a day”, “Drink 2 every day” Several groups of 3 cups and 4 cups a day were analyzed. The analysis showed that the risk of cerebral hemorrhage was reduced by 22-35% compared with the group who did not drink green tea. From the perspective of all stroke patients, the risk of stroke is reduced by 14-20% for people who drink more than 2-3 cups a day.
