    • Abstract:
      The article discusses an analysis of 14 studies of black or green tea which found that consumption of 3 cups daily was associated with a 13% lower risk of stroke. It cites epicatechin commonly obtained from black and green teas, whose intake was associated with a significant 46% lower risk of death from the disease although there was no association in those initially free of cardiovascular disease. It suggests the inclusion of tea and cocoa products as part of a healthy dietary pattern.
