People who drink tea live longer – a new study proves

According to a large-scale American study, tea can be considered part of a healthy diet, and the life expectancy of tea drinkers may be slightly longer than that of non-tea drinkers.

Research has already revealed that tea, for example, also contains anti-inflammatory substances. The health benefits of green tea are already known based on research conducted in China and Japan, and the new study extends them to black tea as well.

In research by the American National Cancer Institute, the tea drinking habits of almost half a million British adults were examined, and the lives of the participants were followed for 14 years.

They found that drinking two or more cups of tea a day reduced the risk of death from any health cause by 9 to 13 percent compared to those who did not drink tea.

The temperature of the tea and whether it was consumed with milk or sugar did not affect the results.

A study published on Monday in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine shows the beneficial physiological effects of drinking tea also found in the case of death caused by heart disease, but the benefit was not clear in the case of cancer. As the researchers wrote: it is possible that there were not enough cancer-related deaths among the participants to demonstrate the beneficial effect of tea drinking.

However, the authors of the study pointed out that their research is based on observing people’s habits and health status, and cannot prove cause-and-effect relationships.

Marion Nestle, professor of food science at New York University, cautioned against a cautious interpretation of the study, noting that observational research like this always raises the question: Is there something else in tea drinkers that makes them healthier?

The lead author of the study, Maki Inoue-Choi, stated that they do not have enough evidence to recommend changing tea drinking habits. At the same time, he added: if someone already drinks a cup of tea a day, he thinks it’s fine, and wished him a good tea.
