For A Healthy Heart – Drink Tea

A very large study done in France showed that those who drank tea daily reduced their risk for heart disease by 24% compared against those who regularly drank coffee. Tea is rich in antioxidants which may offer protection against heart disease. The study from France showed that other lifestyle choices were important, too. Those who drank the most coffee were also more likely to smoke, definitely a behavior that is not heart healthy. More men than women smoke, and being a man increases one’s risk for heart disease which multiplies the risk. Those who drank the most tea were more likely to exercise, definitely a heart healthy option.

The studies demonstrated that good health isn’t isolated to one good habit or one risk factor. Good health habits build upon one another to lower your risk for heart disease while bad health habits couple together to increase your risk.
