Their entire research project is a giant Leslie.

In the 1970's I heard a radio 'news' about people who drink six or more cups of coffee a day have twice the chance of a heart attack as people who don't.   And in addition, they found that tea drinkers seemed to average fewer heart attacks than the norm.

And this whole study is worthless BS because they forget to take into account the same thing:

In the 70's it was "coffee and a cigarette" and tea drinkers, on the other hand, were less likely to smoke than the average population. Most people who smoke die from the heart attack (nicotine) before they get lung cancer. Unfortunately in these studies, they always find what they're looking for.

Remember the three C's:
Coincidence
Correlation
Cause and Effect

And learn to observe the difference.
