For those who like to drink green tea , this info is certainly encouraging . How not ? In the Experimental Biology 2008 conference conducted by scientists , they examined the effects of anti -oxidants than green tea , and they found that the anti -oxidants contained in green tea may prevent breast cancer .
Studies that have been done before it is said that the antioxidants in green tea may be able to prevent breast cancer . However, research is still limited and the mechanism behind it is not clear antioxidant effect .
Well , recently researchers found that green tea contains anti okasidan EGCG ( epigallocatechin – 3 – gallate ) which helps the cells in the body from destruction and early aging .
As explained by one of the researchers , Jian – Wei Gu , of the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson , antioxidants from green tea may help fight breast cancer by suppressing the growth of blood flow in breast tumors as well as could slow growth and migration of breast cancer cells .
Sure, although only tested in female mice , but the study showed positive results . And perhaps also of the results may also apply to humans , especially women . Well hopefully yes .
