A new study reveals that drinking tea could reduce non-cardiovascular mortality by 24 percent, possibly thanks to a combination of tea's antioxidant content and the other healthy lifestyle habits that tea drinkers often maintain.

The profile of tea drinkers was the reverse of that of coffee drinkers. One third, or 34 percent, of tea abstainers were smokers compared to only 24 percent of tea drinkers who drank one to four cups and 29 percent of those who drank more than four cups.
"Overall we tend to have a higher risk profile for coffee drinkers and a lower risk profile for tea drinkers," says Professor Danchin. "We also found big differences with gender. Men tend to drink coffee much more than women, while women tend to drink more tea than men."

"The trend for higher mortality in coffee drinkers is probably largely explained by the fact that there are more smokers in the group who drink a lot of coffee," says Professor Danchin.
