LONDON - Spanish and British scientists have discovered how green tea helps to prevent certain types of cancer.

Quote:
Researchers at the University of Murcia in Spain and the John Innes Center in Norwich, England have shown that a compound called EGCG in green tea prevents cancer cells from growing by binding to a specific enzyme.

“We have shown for the first time that EGCG, which is present in green tea at relatively high concentrations, inhibits the enzyme dihydrofolate reductase, which is a recognized, established target for anti-cancer drugs," Professor Roger Thorneley, of JIC, told Reuters.

“This is the first time, to our knowledge, a known target for an anti-cancer drug has been identified as being inhibited by EGCG,” he added.

Some of my personal favs of green tea are: Blue Mango and Cherry. If you're going to drink green tea, make sure it's the REAL stuff... not the kind you buy at the grocery store... that stuff is over processed.
