For the study, researchers analysed 100,902 participants with no history of heart attacks, strokes or cancer for a period of 7 years. They then divided them up into two groups: the first group were those who drank green tea at least three times a week and the second group hardly drank it at all.

As per the findings, people who drank green tea regularly had a 20% lower risk of heart disease and stroke, compared to those that had no green tea at all.
