|Green Tea: Good for the Soul - and Heart!
Sometimes it's actually easy to be green, especially when the potential health benefits are this great!
In a study that involved 500 Japanese men and women, researchers found that drinking at least four cups of green tea every day may be related to the reduced severity of coronary heart disease among the male participants.
Meanwhile, a Dutch study of more than 3,000 men and women found that the more tea consumed, the less severe the clogging of the heart's blood vessels, especially in women.
