Many people dream of retirement, and they always have cats and dogs and flowers and tea.It sounds leisurely, cozy and healthy. Drink tea and raise dogs to live up to ninety-nine!But it doesn’t seem to be convincing … Recently, a study based on the Chinese population said that drinking tea can indeed live long!Drinking tea for good health, are we kidding about the secret of longevity?Let’s see what the research says.Professor Gu Dongfeng’s team from the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences analyzed the relationship between atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk and tea drinking habits in 100,902 Chinese subjects.None of the subjects had cardiovascular disease or cancer. The study covered 15 provinces in China and spanned 20 years.The research team classified those who drank tea 3 times or more per week as those who had tea drinking habits, and those who drank less than 3 times per week were those who did not drink tea.Comprehensive analysis found that those who have tea drinking habits are less likely to develop cardiovascular disease and have a later onset of disease.Compared with people without tea drinking habits, the incidence of coronary heart disease, atherosclerosis, and stroke was reduced by 18%, 20%, and 20%, respectively, and the onset time was delayed by an average of 0.32-1.41 years.In terms of mortality, those with tea drinking habits were also slightly better than those without tea drinking habits. After 50 years of age, the former had a life expectancy that was 1.26 years longer than the latter.Researchers found that green tea is rich in flavonoids, including epicatechins, catechins, etc., and these can reduce oxidative stress, delay inflammation, and strengthen myocardial cells and endothelial cells, which is beneficial toCardiovascular health.However, the tea polyphenols of black tea are oxidized into pigments and inactivated during the fermentation process, so the effect is weak.After talking about tea, let’s talk about raising dogs!When it comes to retirement … No, when it comes to cardiovascular health, there have been previous studies that found that keeping a dog helps prevent heart disease from recurring!The study conducted a follow-up analysis of people who had suffered from strokes, myocardial infarction, myocardial ischemia and other cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, and found that among them, people who live alone and have dogs live longer than those with family members.Are people really worse than dogs?Researchers said that dog companionship, like family companionship, can alleviate patients’ loneliness.In addition, dog owners know that walking a dog is an activity with a lot of exercise. With a dog, you no longer have to worry about insufficient daily exercise, which is also a great benefit for protecting the heart.In the interaction with dogs, they can exercise their responsiveness and regulation ability, which will help the recovery of patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.Do not believe?Take a look here: People are better than dogs?Research finds that raising dogs is good for cardiovascular health!Work hard, drink tea, raise dogs and live to ninety-nine, maybe not a dream!39health.net (www.39.net) original content, which can not be reproduced without authorization, offenders must be investigated.For content cooperation, please contact: 0000 or 0000
