At the 6th Annual International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research, Rutgers investigators announced that rats fed a diet equivalent to 4-6 cups of Green Tea, in humans, were 55% less likely to develop colon cancer and among those that did, the tumors were 45% smaller compared to the control group. Researchers have published conflicting research on the specific health benefits of green tea; however, the number of studies showing promise is impressive across a number of conditions, including:
- Prostate cancer
- Breast cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Heart disease
The exact mechanism of potential benefit remains unclear. Given that green tea is safe and likely has a range of health benefits, the next time you are considering grabbing something to drink… consider green tea!
