More Good News About Green Tea! Green Tea May Lower Stomach Cancer Risk by 75%

A study published in this month's issue of Cancer Epidemimology, Biomarkers and Prevention, reports that the polyphenol ECG (found in green tea) may reduce the risk of stomach cancer in women by 75%

Stomach cancer is the fourth most common form of cancer in the world with about 800,000 new cases each year.

In the study, researchers from the National Cancer Center in Japan found that women with blood ECG levels of at least 9.3ng/mL were associated with a 75% reduction in stomach cancer risk compared to women with blood levels under 9.3 ng/mL.

ECG is one of four primary polyphenols found in tea leaves. EGCG, the most popular polyphenol, has been shown to decrease risk of certain cancers, neurodegenerative diseases and help balance blood sugar levels.

Green tea has about 30%-40% polyphenols while black tea contains only about 5%-10%.

This study shows yet another in a long list of green tea health benefits that include weight loss, reduced cancer risk, heart and brain protection.
