|Green Tea and Prostate Cancer|
by peter Foremski
I've enjoyed drinking tea most of my adult life, especially in the morning as a prelude to a busy working day. It gives me that essential kick-start to the day and is part of my daily routine. A disease like Cancer never seems to be out of the headlines, so I was curious to see it linked to a form that men are increasingly suffering from.
I've been touched on a personal level on more than one occasion by the sad news that someone I know, whether a friend or family member has been diagnosed with this terrible disease. Given the dramatic advances within the medical world we all hope and pray that a cure is found one day soon. My curiosity was thus aroused when I glanced at a recent headline which talked about green tea and prostate cancer.
These eye catching headlines never give the reader a full account and this article will examine just some of the main points under debate. No one is hailing green tea as being a wonder cure as that's certainly not the case, but it was being talked about more in the way of its protective qualities as a preventative tool which is what surely works best. I've been hearing about antioxidants for ages and how good they are at alleviating or combating things like the aging process and free radicals, which seem to go hand-in-hand whenever one reads about antioxidants in general.
Seems that green tea's antioxidants which are called Catechins are considered as having quite powerful effects. Nowhere more so than when we talk about the different carcinogens that may go on to cause the actual disease. What green tea does is to reduce their potential to do the latter by lowering their toxicity. Another of its claims is to actually inhibit the formation of tumors, again directly attributed to these antioxidants.
Where ever preventative action like drinking green tea is truly effective only time will tell but considering it's a natural product which has been around since the ancient Chinese discovered it, maybe there's no harm in trying it. Like many of us who may already take a vitamin supplement as a daily ritual I'm happy to mention I've also found one that has a green tea extract on it's ingredient list.
Whilst the debate about green tea rolls on, we can and should take some small, personal steps to keep ourselves healthy and reduce the chances of catching any disease.
