Coffee + Tea= Longer Life?

Coffee + Tea= Longer Life?

Don’t Get Up From The Table Until You Finish Your Tea

Japanese researchers Yuji Komorita, MD, PhD, of the Department of Medical and Clinical Science at the Kyushu University School of Medical Science, and Masanori Iwase, MD, PhD, et al, at the Diabetes Center at Hakuiyuji Hospital in Fukuoka Japan studied the effects of green tea and coffee consumption on the longevity of approximately 5,000 Type 2 diabetes patients.

Here’s what they found when comparing those who didn’t drink coffee or tea regularly, to those who consumed it regularly:

  • Tea drinkers who drank:
    • 1 cup per day had a 15% lower risk of death.
    • 2-3 cups per day had a 27% lower risk of death.
    • 4 cups per day had a 40% lower risk of death.
  • Coffee drinkers who drank:
    • 1 cup per day had a 12% lower risk of death.
    • 2+ cups per day had a 41% lower risk of death.

Best of all, it appears that the effects are additive! Drink Up!

More Brain-Building Ideas

I founded Big Brain Place because I saw how fast science is discovering the secrets to brain health, and realized how little I knew about it. Clearly I couldn't be the only one not familiar with the possible actions that can optimize brain health.  At BigBrain.Place we are on a mission to help everyone, at any age, improve cognition, reduce the risk of dementia, insure our children have the opportunity to develop maximum brain capacity, and, in general, make our brainspans match our lifespans.

Are you taking the steps now to prevent dementia later in life?

Could you use some science-based brain building ideas?

Please consider our book: Grow Your Brain Anyone, At Any Age, Can Have a Bigger, Better Brain. It contains insight on those questions and much more. It is now available at a  book store near you, at www.BigBrain.Place, and at Amazon.com in both print and Kindle formats.
