Green Tea Reduce Disability In The Elderly

Elderly adults who regularly drink green tea may stay more mobile and independent and have a higher quality of life, overall.

Over the past years, a lot of research has been done to analyze the health benefits of green tea. As a result, scientists have found that regular consumption of today’s most popular tea in the world, may reduce the risk of cancer, heart attack and stroke.

According to a new study by Japanese researchers, elderly adults who regularly drink green tea may stay more mobile and independent and have a higher quality of life, overall. Project was undertaken by a team from Tokyo’s Graduate School of Medicine, and they have found that adults 65 years and older who drank at least five cups of green tea we per day were the least likely to develop “functional disability” (problems with daily activities) over the next three years.

The authors wrote: “Green tea consumption is significantly associated with a lower risk of incident functional disability, even after adjustment for possible confounding factors.”

Since green tea is made from unfermented leaves and reportedly contains the highest concentration of powerful antioxidants – particularly a compound known as EGCG (Epigallocatechin-3-gallate) – it may prevent cell damage that can lead to disability risk.
The study was published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

    Today, scientific research in both Asia and the west is providing hard evidence for the health benefits long associated with drinking green tea. For example, in 1994 the Journal of the National Cancer Institute published the results of an epidemiological study indicating that drinking green tea reduced the risk of esophageal cancer in Chinese men and women by nearly sixty percent.,’*”

    I’m not sure if there’s a programmable macnhie that’s specific to making tea I know there’s a Mr. Tea macnhie though, just not sure if you can program it, or if you can make hot tea in it.Why can’t you use a programmable coffee macnhie though? Use tea bags or loose tea in the filter area where you put the coffee. The coffee macnhie doesn’t know it’s tea.References :

    Thank you for that.I think that way too many people think that they are ceevrod because they pay for their health insurance. I have to say that I used to be that very same way. That was until my aunt and uncle had their issue my uncle carried the health insurance, and my aunt found out that she had cancer. Low and behold, there was this little paragraph in their insurance that had been paid for faithfully for over 20 years that they would only pay for so much treatment for a major illness, and then that would be it. That little paragraph only ceevrod some of the initial medical treatment none of the meds (they weren’t on their list too expensive, so they had to pay for the hundereds of dollars worth of meds each month out of pocket), and turned out that only the first round of chemo was ceevrod. Because the doctor recommended the second round, the insurance company stated they would not pay for it, and that was that. They were dropped at the end of the policy year. So NOTHING was ceevrod. You think that you are safe and that this public option is not needed for you because you have insurance think again. When all that happened to my aunt and uncle, I grabbed my policy and read it cover to cover. Funny what you find out when that happens like the insurance company gets to dictate my treatment (not me or my doctor), and they will only pay for what their medical staff dictates is necessary (privatized death panels). They didn’t cover some of the medications that would be needed for a major diagnosis (as in cancer), and that would have to be paid for out of pocket. And they also had the option of dropping me from their plan at the end of the policy year if I incurred too much in the way of medical expenses .I beg people read your plans. And if you think that you are never going to have it happen to you, think again. Cancer doesn’t run in our family, and my aunt got it. And they filed bankruptcy last year due to the medical bills. Guess that my bills will go up due to that, won’t they? I mean, they will have to be paid by someone. . .
