But experts warn their love of a cuppa could be storing up health problems for the future, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, dementia and some cancers.

The results come from not-for-profit health body ukactive, which quizzed 2,080 adults before ­National Fitness Day on Wednesday.


More than a quarter admitted doing less than 30 minutes of exercise a week.

and improve cognitive function, mental capacity and resilience.”
