To come to that conclusion, researchers followed more than 83,000 women
who enrolled in
the study in
1980 with no history of stroke
, heart disease, diabetes or cancer.
They found stroke risk was 20 percent lower in those drinking four or more cups a day and 12 percent lower in those who had coffee five to seven times a week.
Tea drinkers may have reason to enjoy their brew, too, according to another study presented at the San Diego meeting.
