Green Tea Could Help Avoid Cancer

Hmmm, it seems there’s more to Green Tea than meets the “tongue”…

Concentrated chemicals derived from green tea dramatically boosted production of a group of key detoxification enzymes in people with low levels of these beneficial proteins, according to researchers at Arizona Cancer Center.

These findings, published in the August issue of Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, suggest that a green tea concentrate might help some people strengthen their metabolic defense against toxins capable of causing cancer.

I’m not much of a tea person, although my wife loves the stuff, and I have a friend who worships it; I only occasionally drink it. But from now on, I think I’ll be working more of it into my drinking habits; some green tea, with mint and pine nuts is always great.
