Tea Helps Prevent Gallbladder Cancer

 

 

A study in China shows that green tea has the benefits of preventing bile stones and cancer. Women in particular had more protection than men.

According to the study one cup of green tea daily for six months helped lower the risk of gallbladder cancer by 44 percent, bile duct cancer by 33 percent and reduced the risk of bile stones by 27 percent. Antioxidants, especially EGCG, seems to be the one that shows promise.

Green tea has many healthful benefits in addition to preventing cancer.

When drinking tea on a regular basis, brewing your own, as compared to bottled, is much more healthful because it's fresh and the health giving properties are at full strength.
