Green Tea Can Help Prevent Cancer Cells From Growing
Killing off cancer cells before they have the chance to reproduce and create tumors chaotically is undoubtedly of benefit. Another anti-cancer benefit of green tea is that when cancer cells do form, it can help prevent them from growing and reproducing. This quality is generated by the high levels of EGCG found in green tea.
EGCG inhibits the production of a protein known as cyclin D1, which causes cancer cells to grow. EGCG is like a soldier that destroys cyclin D1 and prevents the cancer cells from growing, often permanently.
