Here at Thermography for Health I perform a lot of breast and body screenings as a safe and radiation free alternative to mammograms. For today’s post I would like to share with you how Green Tea can help lower the risk of Breast Cancer.
Japanese researchers found that women who consume green tea daily have a significantly lower risk of breast cancer. They also learned that women who have breast cancer and increase their consumption of green tea live much longer than women who don’t drink it.
Several studies have shown the polyphenol in green tea, ECGC, inhibits the growth of breast cancer and decreases the spread of cancer cells.
Scientists have also found that Green Tea increases the number of protein binders in the blood so that less estrogen is available to attach to receptors in the breast.
Green Tea can also help if you are currently going through chemotherapy. Research shows that it enhances the effectiveness and helps protect against many of its dangerous side effects.
