Green Tea can do all of that
Researchers from the Pharmacology Unit, the University of the
West Indies, Trinidad and Tobago analyzed a large body of data on Green
Tea. The analysis was nonsystematic because there is an overwhelming
amount of research available on green tea and its extract. With
critical analysis of the research that they examined they determined
that Green Tea or an Extract supplying EGCG has a trend towards
decreasing the development of both breast and prostate cancer. There is
a decrease in relapse in colon cancer after surgery and there is an
increased rate of survival in women with ovarian cancer.
The evidence also shows that Green Tea or an Extract of EGCG
decreases the risk of developing high blood pressure and that they also
decrease the risk of stroke. The analysis of studies is published in
the May 21, 2009 issue of the journal Preventive Medicine.
journal deals with prevention regardless if the prevention is from a
diet, surgery, a drug, immunization, or a supplement and is not to be
confused with a journal dealing with alternative medicine.
