Green tea shown to protect the elderly

Posted on April 22, 2012

This article reported the results of a survey to assess an association between green tea consumption and a lowered incidence of functional disability, such as stroke, cognitive impairment, and osteoporosis in nearly 14,000 elderly Japanese. After adjusting for confounding factors such as previous health status, diet, social support, etc., the authors found higher amounts of green tea consumption were associated with lower incidences of functional disability in what may be the first reported study to have proven this relationship.
