You may want to switch your after-dinner order from decaf coffee to chamomile tea. A new study found that when older Mexican-American women drank the beverage regularly, they reduced their risk of dying by more than 25 percent. Researchers aren’t sure how chamomile might promote longevity, but since it’s so affordable and relatively harmless, why not give it a try? One caveat: those with ragweed allergies may also be sensitive to chamomile. So if, after a steamy cup, you develop an itchy throat rather than a sense of well-being, go ahead and stick to that cappuccino. Does your family have any folk remedies for longevity?
