Green Tea May Cut Prostate Cancer

According to a report from the Epidemiology and Prevention Division of the National Cancer Center in Tokyo, a study of 50,000 men aged 40-to-69 revealed that those who drank 5 or more cups of green tea a day cut their risk of developing progressive prostate cancer by half. Researchers speculate that catechin, a substance contained in green tea, may either inhibit cancerous cell growth or help reduce testosterone levels.
