Regularly drinking green tea and coffee may lower your risk of having a stroke, a new study has found.
Researchers studied 83,269 Japanese men and women for an average of 13 years.
They found those who drank at least one cup of coffee a day had a 20% lower risk of stroke compared to those who drank coffee less regularly, while people who drank at least four cups of green tea daily had a 20% less chance of stroke.
Previous studies have found green tea may lower the risk of heart disease, but haven't looked at stroke risks on a large scale.
Coffee, on the other hand, contains chlorogenic acid, which cuts the chances of stroke by curbing the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
The study is published in the American Heart Association journal Stroke.
