Tea and Ovarian Cancer

separator A recent study has shown that drinking two cups of tea per day may significantly reduce the risk of ovarian cancer. From 1997 through 2004, researchers from Sweden looked at more than 61,000 women. Women who drank a cup or less per day had an 18 percent lower cancer than women who hardly ever drank tea. Women who drank two or more cups per day had a 46 percent lower risk.

The tea that the women consumed in the study was black tea, but researchers believe that green tea may also be beneficial.
