Drink green tea, get less cancer

A long list of studies confirms that green tea drinkers generally get less cancer.

When researchers at Chung Shan Medical University in Taiwan, analyzed the diets of people with lung cancer and those without, they found that, for smokers, drinking green tea lowered the cancer risk by a factor of more than 12. Overall, among smokers and non-smokers, green tea was shown to lower lung cancer risk by 500 percent.2

Scientists at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center have shown that green tea lowers women’s risk of developing digestive system cancers, especially cancers of the stomach/esophagus and colo-rectum.3

"For all digestive system cancers combined, the risk was reduced by 27 percent among women who had been drinking tea regularly for at least 20 years," says Vanderbilt researcher Sarah Nechuta. "For colorectal cancer, risk was reduced by 29 percent among the long-term tea drinkers. These results suggest long-term cumulative exposure may be particularly important."

The Best way to Drink Green Tea

To protect your health, the best way to drink green tea is with lemon juice (or take vitamin C at the same time) and just a touch of sugar. Studies at Purdue show that consuming vitamin C (it’s in the lemon juice) and sucrose along with green tea can triple your absorption of green tea’s helpful catechins.4

It’s not often that one sees any benefit to eating sugar. In fact, this is the first time I’ve seen such a benefit reported. I’m a bit skeptical. It’s probably the lemon juice-green tea combo that’s so beneficial. But I guess we can allow ourselves a teensy amount of sugar :-)
