Green Tea Associated With Lower Mortality Risk

Green Tea Associated With Lower Mortality RiskAn analysis of two ongoing prospective studies conducted in China found an association between regular consumption of green tea and a lower risk of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality during a median follow-up period of 8.3 years for men and 14.2 years for women.*

The analysis included 51,920 men enrolled in the Shanghai Men’s Health Study, established in 2002 to 2006, and 64,034 participants in the Shanghai Women’s Health Study, established from 1997 to 2000.

During the follow-up periods, 2,741 deaths were documented among the men and 3,776 fatalities occurred among the women. Compared to non-green tea drinkers, there was a 5% lower adjusted risk of mortality from any cause in association with drinking green tea regularly, and an 11% lower risk among green tea drinkers who never smoked.

Editor’s Note: When deaths from cardiovascular disease were examined, the reduction in risk over follow-up was 14% lower for regular consumers of green tea.
