A new study shows that drinking tea every day lowers the risk of death | Pro IQRA News

It’s good news for anyone who enjoys the brew, as a new study links daily tea drinking to a lower risk of death.

A new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that people who consumed two or more cups a day had a 9% to 13% lower risk of death than those who did not drink tea at all.

Before we start arguing about how we consume our beer – and how much or less milk and sugar we consume – the results were the same no matter how they consumed it.

The findings found no difference whether a person drank coffee or added milk or sugar to their tea.

The researchers also analyzed whether there were any changes in preferred temperature or whether there were any genetic variants that would affect the rate at which a person metabolizes caffeine.

Researchers from the National Institute of Health used data from the UK Biobank in their study, which found that 85% of half a million men and women aged 40-69 drank tea regularly.

89% of them say they drink black tea.

The study was conducted with a questionnaire that was answered from 2006 to 2010 and then followed for more than a decade.

The study was described by Fernando Rodríguez Artalejo, professor of preventive medicine and public health at the Autonomous University of Madrid, as a “significant advance in the field”.

The professor noted that most similar studies have been conducted in Asia, where green tea is consumed the most, and studies outside Asia have been “small in size and inconclusive.”

He added: “This paper shows that regular consumption of black tea (the most consumed tea in Europe) is associated with a modest reduction in overall and cardiovascular mortality over 10 years in middle-aged, predominantly white adults. general population.”

So will drinking tea help you live longer?

The truth is, we still don’t know.

Professor Rodríguez Artalejo commented that the study does not definitively say that tea is the cause of the decrease in death among tea drinkers.

This is because it cannot rule out that the results are independent of other health factors associated with tea consumption.

Have you started drinking tea for your health?

Again, we don’t have a definitive answer yet.

The professor added: “Studies should be conducted with repeated measurements of tea consumption over time, and the mortality rate of non-consumers should be compared with those who started consuming tea or increased their consumption over time, and those who drank tea for years.”

What is the correct way to make tea?

How to make tea has divided households, friends and offices for longer than any of us can remember – but is there really a ‘right’ way to make it?

As part of the UK tea break campaign, Toolstation tried to answer this question with their own research.

A survey of 478 tradesmen and 1,005 members of the British public revealed the “correct” way of making tea.

  • The tea bag goes inside– 92% accepted it as the first step. Some controversial views saw the milk being added first (1.3%), as well as squeezing the tea bag into the cup before any water was added (1%).
  • hot water – 74% saw this as the second step in the process, but 8% of votes added milk at this stage and 10% added sugar or sweetener at this stage.
  • Allow the tea bag to steep– 59% let their tea sit and brew at this point, but there were many different opinions. 16% of the nation add hot water as the third step, 8% of the vote prefer to strain the tea bag with a cup, and 1.8% add the tea bag at this point.
  • Press the tea bag over the glass– 48% of the UK think it’s time to squeeze out as much of the tea bag as possible. Opinions were split at this point, with 13% removing the tea bag, 13% adding milk and 3% adding only hot water.
  • Remove the tea bag– 46% take out the tea bag and now pack things. However, 4% add sugar at this stage, 20% squeeze the tea bag and 2% still brew their tea.
  • add milk – Now the bag is ready, 38% of Brits add milk to their brews, but 25% of the UK finish a step or two earlier at this stage.

According to the study, the most common brew time among Brits is 1-2 minutes, with 24% preferring it.

The Brits are the favorite couple for 13 of the 17 cities surveyed, and they can’t get enough of chocolate.
