Looking for a healthy beverage option that will help you prevent cancer? The cancer-protective effects of green tea have been reported in several population based studies. For example, cancer rates tend to be low in countries such as Japan where green tea is regularly consumed. Emerging animal and clinical studies are beginning to suggest that EGCg may play an important role in the prevention of cancer. It has been suggested that EGCg and other tea catechins suppress tumour promotion by inhibiting the release of tumour necrosis factor-alpha, which is believed to stimulate tumour promotion and progression of initiated cells as well as premalignant cells (Fujiki et. al., 2003).
