Tea, heart health and diabetes.. a study reveals great benefits


Tea is the favorite drink of many, especially in the Arab world, because of its distinctive flavor, but most importantly, it has many health benefits, which new research revealed.

A team of scientists in China conducted a research that included a review of 19 studies, which will be presented at the annual meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes, next week.


More than just a taste.. the benefits are endless


A review of previous research. What is the conclusion? The research included more than one million adults in 8 countries, and its results revealed that:


Drinking several cups of tea a day, contributes to reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and mortality in general.

Drinking at least 4 cups a day of black, green or Chinese oolong tea reduced the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 17 percent, over a decade.

The results showed that drinking only one to three cups a day reduced the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 4 percent.

The risk of diabetes was reduced by 1 percent for each additional daily cup.

A study published last month found that drinking two or more cups of black tea per day over a 14-year period reduced the overall risk of death by 9 to 13 per cent among people in the UK, compared to those who did not drink tea.

Diabetes and heart disease prevention: an association between drinking multiple cups of tea and a lower risk of coronary heart disease and stroke.


How tea fights inflammation?


The antioxidants in tea can reduce inflammation.

The health benefits of drinking tea may relate to polyphenols, which are compounds found naturally in plants that provide antioxidants.

We think our findings will be very reassuring for people who already drink tea,says Maki Inou-choi, a scientist at the National Cancer Institute in China who led the research.


Why are the results of the research different from previous studies:


When they did not take into account the number of cups of tea people consumed, the risk of developing type 2 diabetes was about the same for tea drinkers and non-tea drinkers, according to a separate study of 5,200 adults.

Adding milk or sugar to tea does not reduce the health benefits, but when people use these ingredients in moderation.


Drinking tea and the risk of cancer


Results have varied regarding the association of tea drinking and a reduced risk of death from cancer.

Although some previous studies indicated that drinking tea may reduce the risk of prostate, lung, ovarian, or colorectal cancer, one study also found that drinking 3 cups of black tea per day was a significant risk factor for breast cancer.

Another study said that drinking very hot tea was associated with an increased risk of esophageal cancer.

The results for cancer were more mixed,Inoue-choi explained, noting that scientists currently do not make any general recommendations about the ideal amount of tea to drink.

We wouldn't recommend people change their tea intake based solely on this individual study, she added.
