More than 50 epidemiologic studies of the association between tea consumption and cancer risk have been published since 2006. The results of these studies have often been inconsistent, but some have linked tea consumption to reduced risks of cancers of the colon, breast, ovary, prostate, and lung. Green tea contains substances called polyphenols, which scientists think contribute to its anti-cancer activity. Laboratory studies of one polyphenol, catechin epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), show that it may interfere with several of the processes involved in cell replication, causing tumor cell death (apoptosis).

    I seen something about a doctor by the name of Otto Warburg who discovered the correlation between a high acidic PH and low oxygen environment that promotes cancer oposed to a low acidic and rich oxygen environment impeding cancer cells to form and multiply. Green tea has a high alkaline level which is opposite to a high acidic PH this in turn helps the body to have a low PH level decreasing the the environment that cancer cells can thrive.
