Tea may not only cause weight loss it may also significantly reduce the risk of a heart attack according to a recent epidemiological study.
The risk of heart attack was reduced 44 percent in people who drank one cup or more of tea per day compared to people who drank no tea.
Heart attack risk was also found to be 16 percent lower in people who drank four cups of coffee or more per day compared to those who drank one cup or less per week; and those who drank decaffeinated coffee, one cup or more per day, were 25 percent more likely to suffer a heart attack than those who drank none.
However the differences in risk in coffee drinkers was not statistically significant.
