7 Reasons to Drink Green Tea

By on November 1, 2012

Studies have long found an association between drinking green tea and a reduced risk for cancers, including, skin, breast, lung, colon, esophageal, and bladder. Now research shows men with prostate cancer who consumed green tea prior to undergoing prostate  removal had less inflammation.

Susanne M. Henning, an adjunct professor at the David Geffen School of  Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles, said research she and her  colleagues conducted offers new insights into the mechanisms by which green tea  consumption may chance of getting prostate cancer by opposing processes such as  inflammation, which are associated with prostate cancer growth.

Henning and colleagues examined potential mechanisms by which green tea may  have had beneficial effects among 67 men with prostate cancer scheduled to have  a prostatectomy. The researchers randomly assigned the men to either six cups of brewed green  tea or water daily for three to eight weeks, depending on the timing of their  surgery.

They collected blood and urine samples before and after the green tea or  water consumption and collected prostate tissue following the pathology  exam.

The data showed serum prostate-specific antigen concentrations were  significantly lower at the end of the study compared with baseline levels in men  consuming green tea. In addition, prostate tissue PSA protein expression was  lower in men assigned to green tea consumption compared with the control group  at the end of the study.

Also did you know that the antioxidants in green, black, and oolong teas can help block the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol, increase HDL (good) cholesterol and improve artery function.

The findings were presented at the annual American Association for Cancer  Research International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research in  Los Angeles.
