New research from the U.S. National Institutes of Health shows that the biochemicals in green tea change a women’s estrogen metabolism, revealing at least one of its mechanisms for reducing the risk of breast cancer.
Tea is the most popular beverage in the world and many people drink it for its pleasant taste, comfort, and general health benefits. But green tea can do much more. It can save lives.
Tea is believed to have been used as a medicine before it grew into a beverage, which is why it should not be surprising to hear that modern scientific research has revealed several hundred potential health beverages associated with its consumption. The benefits extend from green to black tea, and perhaps also to the very act of taking the time to have a restful cup, away from the hustle and bustle.
