Green Tea Cuts Fatal Illness Risk

Drinking green tea can reduce the rise of dying from a range of illnesses, a Japanese study has claimed.

The research, which covered over 40,000 people, found the risk of fatal cardiovascular disease was cut by more than a quarter. But, British heart experts said the benefits may be linked to the whole Japanese diet, which is healthier than that eaten in the west.

The work is published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
