What Is Green Tea?

Tea has been drunk for centuries and is one of the most popular drinks in the world.

Green tea is made by drying and steaming fresh tea leaves straight after harvesting.

Green tea is packed full of powerful antioxidant which can help to protect the body from many health conditions such as:

  • Cancer
  • Coronary Heart Disease
  • High Cholesterol
  • Hypertension
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis.
  • Stroke
Why Is Green Tea A Must In Your Cancer Fighting Diet?

Green tea is a must in your cancer fighting diet because it is rich in catechin polyphenols especially epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).

EGCG is an extremely powerful anti-cancer compound. It stops the production of an enzyme called urokinae, which cancer cells need to grow.

EGCG stops cancer cells from growing and kills them without harming healthy tissue. Green tea can help reduce the risk of developing cancers such as:

  • Bladder Cancer
  • Breast Cancer
  • Colon Cancer
  • Pancreas Cancer
  • Rectum Cancer
  • Skin Cancer
  • Stomach Cancer

How Much Green Tea Do You Need To Include In Your Cancer Fighting Diet?

To help prevent cancer, you can drink up to ten cups of green tea a day.

There seems to be a lot of conflicting debate on how many cups of green tea you need to drink per day to protect your health.

Generally, it is believed that seven to ten cups of green tea a day will help to prevent cancer.

So, to sum up. . .

To protect against cancer, it is best to drink at least seven cups of green tea a day as part of your cancer fighting diet.

It is the catechin polyphenols within green tea that helps to protect you against many types of cancer.
