According to a recent study, moderate consumption of coffee and tea separately or in combination could be linked to lower risk of stroke and dementia.
The study investistigated self-reported information from 365.682 healthy participants aged 50-74 from the UK Biobank between 2006 and 2010 and followed them until 2020.
The researchers found that people who drank 2-3 cups of coffee or 3-5 cups of tea per day, or a combination of 4–6 cups of coffee and tea had the lowest incidence of stroke or dementia. Participants who drank 2-3 cups of coffee and 2-3 cups of tea daily had a 32% lower risk of stroke and a 28% lower risk of dementia compared with those who drank neither coffee nor tea. Enjoying only coffee or in combination with tea was also linked to lower risk of post-stroke dementia.
The researchers highlight that the results of their study don’t establish the cause-effect relationship between coffee/tea and stroke/dementia/post-stroke dementia. However, it doesn’t mean that coffee and tea consumption couldn’t play a protective role against the diseases.
