A study in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology found people in China who reported drinking green tea at least three times per week could expect at age 50 that their lives would be 1.26 years longer than the lives of their peers who didn't regularly consume green tea. Researchers tracked 100,902 Chinese adults with no history of stroke, heart attack, or cancer for about seven years and found regular green tea drinkers were 20% less likely to develop heart disease and 22% less likely to die from stroke and heart disease.
