 Green Tea may Cut Stroke Risk
Two cups of green tea a day may reduce a person's risk of having the most common form of stroke, say researchers.

According to researcher Professor Colin Binns, of the School of Public Health at Curtin University in Western Australia, the study shows that people who drink at least one cup of green tea a day reduce their risk of ischemic stroke, reports ABC Online.

"We can say if you are going to drink a beverage, then tea is the healthier option," said Binns.

"We believe other kinds of tea are half as effective as green tea in reducing risk," he added.

The findings have been published in the journal Stroke.
