A new study done in the U.S. has shown that an increased intake of tea can help greatly reduce the chance of breast cancer in young women. As the article states, “The threat of another type of tumour, affecting the lobes deep inside the breast tissue, was cut by two thirds.” While studies have been done in the past that connected tea drinking with decreased risk of cancer, this particular study focused greatly on the younger age groups and, hopefully, will garner attention to reveal a simple preventative measure.
What the researchers have discovered is that the polyphenols found in the tea are responsible for this reduction of breast cancer risk. Most teas contain high amounts of these polyphenols, which have shown to reduce cholesterol and lower blood pressure as well reduce the risk of cancer.
