A team of researchers, led by Yuan Zhang, from Tianjin Medical University, Tianjin, China studied data on 365,682 participants from the UK Biobank, recruited in2006-2010 and followed until 2020. At the outset, participants reported their coffee and tea intake. Over the study period, 5,079 participants developed dementia, and 10,053 had at least one stroke.

The analysis of the collected data showed that individuals 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.

Those 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 didn’t drink any of these beverages at all. Consumption of coffee alone or in combination with tea was also associated with a lower risk of post-stroke dementia.
