How to Fight Breast Cancer With Green Tea
There are many options when you are attempting to fight breast cancer. From, keeping fit, to eating right to various medicine there is no shortage of choices. However, there is one that you may not have considered – green tea.
“Green tea?,” you ask. “Green tea,” says I. And here’s why: green tea contains antioxidants, flavonoids and polyphenols which aid in preventing the formation of cancer cells, and will also kill existing cancer cells and stop their progression, and will aid in lowering breast cancer risk and in preventing it entirely. In fact in one study, taken using women with varying stages of breast cancer, it was found that those that drank the most tea, experienced the least amount of cancer progression.
Recent studies have also shown that green tea is effective in fighting off other forms of cancer as well. It has been found that men you drink green tea dramatically reduce their risk of prostate and breast cancer, compared with men that do not. Studies also showed that women that had ovarian cancer and who drank green tea consistently were able to live longer than those that did not.
Green tea has been found to slow the growth of colorectal, esophagal, and stomach cancer cells and stunt the development of skin, bladder and pancreatic cancer cells. In each case, the subjects that drank green tea invariably lived longer than those that did not.
Is green tea a miracle cure? There is no such thing however it can significantly help reduce the risk of developing many different types of cancer. Along with a preventative plan, you can decrease your chances of developing any form of cancer and increase your survival chances as well.
