Green Tea and Lung Cancer

A recent article on BBC, front page news states that green tea can block lung cancer. The article cited several cancer experts who spoke about a number of specific studies that point to green tea’s cancer stopping effects. In particular, several studies have shown that extracts from the green tea called Polyphenols can stop lung cancer from growing.

The link between green tea and its cancer reducing abilities originated with the discovery that rates of many cancers are much lower in Asia which green tea is widely consumed, much more than everywhere else in the world.

Dr. I-Hsin Lin of Shan Medical University found that among smokers and non-smokers, people who did not drink green tea were more than 5 times as likely to get lung cancer as those who drank at least a cup per day.

Make green tea a part of your daily habit.

(Please note that drinks such as Arizona Green Tea do NOT constitute “a cup a day.” They are glorified sodas.)
