In Asian American women, the consumption of green tea is associated with a lower incidence of breast cancer, according to an article published recently by the “International Journal of Cancer.”
According to researchers who participated in the study of the University of Southern California, in Los Angeles, it has been shown that compared to non-tea-drinking women, the risk of breast cancer was significantly lower among those who consumed green tea , so this drink showed in this study a protective effect of breast cancer.
The study was carried out among 501 Asian-American women diagnosed with breast cancer. The authors also studied data on hormonal, menstrual and reproductive factors, dietary habits and lifestyles.
Recently another great medical contribution was made in favor of the fight against this disease, the study comes from the National Cancer Institute of the USA, and was directed by Dr. Barbara Fuhrman. Researchers evaluated estrogen levels among 181 healthy American and Japanese women in California and Hawaii. Of the group, 72 of the women were of postmenopausal age and the rest of the group was premenopausal.
What were the results of this study?
The research found that postmenopausal women who drank green tea daily had 20% less urinary estrone and 40% less estradiol levels in urine, compared to the levels of women who drank green tea less than once a week. .
This allowed the researchers to determine that these urinary estrogen differences were related to their overall metabolism of estrogen and the future risk of developing breast cancer. These results show that the active ingredients in green tea change the estrogen metabolism of women, which is one of the mechanisms to reduce the risk of breast cancer.
In this way it would be more than evident the powerful help that Silver Jasmine Green Tea (Mo Li Yin Hao) can offer in the treatments to fight against cancer but also in the preventive action that it can develop.
