Coffee & Tea Prevent Heart Disease

Result of 13 year study on 40,000 people reveals those who drank more than six cups of tea a day cut their risk of heart disease by a third.
"It's basically a good news story for those who like tea and coffee. These drinks appear to offer benefits for the heart without raising the risk of dying from anything else," said Professor Yvonne van der Schouw, the lead researcher."
And my favorite part of the whole article:
"However, it's worth remembering that leading a healthy overall lifestyle is the thing that really matters when it comes to keeping your heart in top condition.
"Having a cigarette with your coffee could completely cancel any benefits, while drinking lots of tea in front of the TV for hours on end without exercising is unlikely to offer your heart much protection at all." (BBC)
