Drinking Green And Black Tea Linked to Lower Ovarian Cancer RiskTopics: Health Issues
Epidemiologists at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, report that middle-age women who drink two or more cups of green or black tea every day may reduce their risk for invasive epithelial ovarian cancer by almost half, and with every cup consumed, they've been found to have more protection. Although more study is needed, these findings add to the growing body of evidence that supports the cancer-protective potential of tea.
The antioxidant polyphenols in green and black tea, which include catechins, theaflavins, thearubigins, and flavonols, are abundantly present in both green and black teas, and have been shown to inhibit carcinogenesis.
