University researchers demonstrate Green Teas ability to inhibit ovarian cancer cells

  Researchers from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Alpert Medical School of University tested the effects of Green Teas most potent ingredient EGCG on human ovarian cancer cells. The greater the amount of EGCG added to the cells the less viable they were (more likely to be destroyed) and the lower the ability to grow and multiply. The Green Tea constituent was destroying the cells causing them to die in greater numbers. The study is published in the July 2010 issue of the journal Anticancer Research.
