Green Tea for Prostate Health
I love how western medicine is usually the last to get on board. What do I man by that? For thousands of years Asian cultures have promoted the many health benefits of green tea. And finally in the last decade, modern science has been catching up. Hundreds of studies now confirm that drinking a few cups of green tea every day can be highly beneficial to your health. And two recent studies show that it provides particularly powerful prostate protection.
Italian researchers studied 62 men with a pre-cancerous prostate condition. (Normally, this condition would result in cancer in 30 percent of cases.) Half the men were given a placebo, while half consumed green tea extract daily. In the placebo group, 9 out of 30 men developed cancer. In the green tea group, only 1 out of 32 developed the disease. This is consistent with the results of an Australian study of Chinese men which found that those who consumed the most green tea were two-thirds less likely to develop prostate cancer.
You can buy organic green tea and green tea extract at any health food store.
