One meta-analysis published in the journal Molecules and Cells highlighted the protective effects of the catechins against cancer.
The authors wrote: “Consuming over 10 cups of green tea per day also significantly prevented lung cancer, followed by cancer of the colorectal, liver and stomach.”
With regards to the recurrence of cancer, one study reported that the rate of breast cancer was significantly lower for patients consuming more than five cups of green tea daily.
Cancer Research UK explains that laboratories studies have shown that green tea extract could also lower the risk of breast, prostate and bowel cancer.
