Study: Green tea may help reduce risks of cancer

A recent study revealed that green tea consumption is associated with a moderate reduction in the risk of developing cancers such as colon, rectal, stomach, esophageal, and prostate cancers.

This result came after a group of researchers at the University of Washington School of Medicine reviewed the results of 11 experimental studies, including examining the cases of a total of 1,795 participants who took either an extract of green tea or a placebo, as well as reviewing the results of 131 non-experimental studies.

The study showed that catechins, an inexpensive, easy-to-use and safe phytochemical, are the main bio-component in the polyphenol antioxidant found in green tea.

The researchers found that most of the anti-cancer effects of tea are mediated by the compound “catechins”, and green tea is linked to good health.
