In addition to exerting antioxidant activity on its own, green tea may increase the activity of antioxidant enzymes in one interesting study from the journal cancer research, mice were fed green tea polyphenols via their drinking water for 30 days researchers discovered a significant increase in the activity. Green tea is consumed primarily in china, japan, and a few countries in north africa and the middle east in recent years it has become popular in europe and north america and now green tea pills are touted for weight loss, as potent antioxidants, and for tumor prevention potential health benefit human research is still.

In this short paper, we discuss the potential of green tea extract, (-)- epigallocatechin-3-galate (egcg) in hnscc chemoprevention, focusing on two aspects that are provided as indicated by a recent review, we have witnessed remarkable progresses in the chemoprevention research in hnscc [6.
Studies are now looking to see if certain foods, vitamins (such as vitamin e), minerals (such as selenium), dietary supplements (such as green tea extract or broccoli sprout extract), chemotherapy drugs, or other drugs can reduce the risk of the cancer coming back or developing a second bladder cancer. Additional research based on mice and human genetic analysis suggest people may be more susceptible to liver damage from high doses of green tea extract if they have an over representation of certain genes, including period circadian clock 3, mitofusin 2 and vacuolar protein sorting 13 homolog 7. Green tea is a drink made from the dried leaves of the asian plant camellia sinensis research into green tea researchers have done some research into whether green tea or green tea extract can be helpful in preventing or treating cancer there are no reports of any other harmful effects from using green tea.

Pu-erh tea is believed to have health benefits, the growth inhibition activity of pu- erh tea on breast cancer cell has not been investigated in this study, we examined the activity of pu-erh tea water extract on apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in the human breast adenocarcinoma cell line mda-mb-231 and clarified its underlying. Each paper is based on presentations from world-renowned scientists who participated in the fifth international scientific symposium on tea and human health, held at usda in new research shows tea may help promote weight loss, improve heart health and slow progression of prostate cancer.

Quercetin (for increasing bioavailability, and preventing cancer of the lung and kidneys) fish oil (for cancer prevention effects are quite dose-dependent, and would be better to consume all catechins (as green tea extract) rather than isolated egcg robust research conducted with repeated double-blind clinical trials. Metastasis remains the principal cause of the deaths of cancer patients despite decades of research aimed at restricting tumor growth the effects of a diet containing lysine, proline, arginine, ascorbic acid, and green tea extract on the growth of tumors induced by implanting human pca pc-3 cells in athymic nude mice. Egcg with tamoxifen, on cancer-preventive activity in human lung cancer cell line pc-9 this paper reports confirmation of the synergistic effects of egcg with sulindac on the inhibition of intestinal tumors in multi- ple intestinal neoplasia ( min) mice treatment with both green tea extract and sulindac significantly reduced.
