Green tea may slow prostate cancer growth, research shows
October 18, 2012 (WLS) -- There could there be a positive link between green tea consumption and prostate cancer.
Scientists say they have found that six cups of green tea a day may slow the progression of the disease.
The research shows prostate patients scheduled for surgery to remove their prostate reduced their levels of some disease associated inflammation by drinking a lot of brewed green tea in the weeks before the operation.
It is believed that reduction in inflammation may inhibit tumor growth.
The findings were presented at the American Association for Cancer Research annual meeting.
