Green Tea May Lead to Longer Life: Study

(WVLT) - New studies show green tea is good for the skin and may even contribute to a longer life.

A German study found green tea extracts could help people with skin damaged from radiation therapy.

Researchers in Japan followed 40,000 people over 11 years and found people who consume five or more cups of green tea a day are likely to live longer, compared to people who drink one cup a day.

And if you're a smoker, green tea won't do you any good, doctors say smoking cancels out all those benefits.
