Can Green Tea help prevent cancer?

Can Green Tea help prevent cancer?

In this article, we are going to honestly address some of the alleged cancer-preventing properties of green tea. We will also touch upon how green tea and black tea can help cancer patients. Using scientific studies and discoveries, we will present you with the latest information in a fair and balanced way.

Evidence suggests that green tea has anti-cancer properties

There are many things out there that boldly claim to help prevent cancer. Early studies showed good evidence that green tea may, in fact, have anti-cancer properties. Some scientific studies have demonstrated that green tea extracts can prevent cancer cells from growing. One of the reasons why this has credence is that green tea contains something called 'polyphenols'; additionally, it has a subgroup called 'catechins'. Scientists believe that these properties give it special antioxidant properties.

Organic Green Tea reduces the risk of growing certain cancers

However, antioxidants haven't been proven to have any substantial benefits to humans. What is more concrete, however, is that green tea can help prevent certain kinds of cancer, according to an overview of studies (also known as a meta-analysis) that was published in 2014. The meta-analysis concluded that green tea could, in fact, reduce the risk of growing mouth cancers. Additionally, another meta-analysis suggests that the consumption of green tea could reduce the chance of getting lung cancer. Finally, another study has demonstrated that green tea can have a preventative effect on the development of bladder cancer. Bonus fact: the risk of developing cancer in the oesophagus also seems to be lessened for women who regularly drink green tea.

Meta-analyses carry extra weight, since the chance for bias is drastically reduced when an overall result is determined from many studies. By assessing numerous studies from only neutral sources, researchers and analysts can pull meaningful data while discarding outliers.

Black tea has also been heralded as having anti-cancer properties. Black tea is derived from the same plant that green tea is, but black tea is brewed from fermented leaves. Regardless of whether or not you accept that green tea has anti-cancer properties, there is no harm in trying it. Many people believe that green tea also boosts the immune system and increases well-being.
