Drink This to Stop Breast Cancer Tumors Naturally
“The chance that breast cancer will be responsible for a woman’s death is about 1 in 36 (about 3%),” says the American Cancer Society. “After increasing for more than 2 decades, female breast cancer incidence rates began decreasing in 2000, then dropped by about 7% from 2002 to 2003.”
Although the decrease is credited to a decline in the use of hormone therapy drugs, which was shown to increase a woman’s breast cancer risk in 2002, it’s still a huge issue–national organizations estimate nearly 40,000 women will die this year from breast cancer alone. But is there a way to stop it?
“Some risk factors, like a person’s age or race, can’t be changed,” says the American Cancer Society. “Simply being a woman is the main risk factor for developing breast cancer. Men can develop breast cancer, but this disease is about 100 times more common among women than men.”
However, according to a study presented headed by Columbia University Medical Center in New York, N.Y., there may be a way to reverse this risk. The solution? A Chinese drink recently lauded by dieters in America–one that could save your health as well as slim your waistline.
The Special Drink That May Naturally Stop Breast Cancer
As far as doctors are concerned, there really isn’t a way to prevent breast cancer–but evidence provided by Columbia University spins a different tale.
Testing a group of 40 women diagnosed with breast cancer, assistant professor Katherine D. Crew, M.D. analyzed the effects of Pollyphenon E, a natural extract derived from green tea–and the effects were startling.
“Women assigned to the extract had an average 10-fold increase in green tea metabolites compared with placebo,” reports Science Daily, who first reported these findings in 2012. ” In addition, they had a significant reduction in hepatocyte growth factor levels at two months compared with women assigned to placebo.”
It seems this innocuous green tea extract isn’t just great for a higher metabolism, according to Crew–it may also reduce the growth of tumors associated with breast cancer.
And if you’re at risk for this cancer, the news couldn’t be sweeter.
But is drinking a lot of green tea the answer? According to Crew, not necessarily so; it would be difficult to drink enough green tea to meet the criteria established in the study. However, some osteopaths speculate that a concentrated form of green tea, a type only found in green tea supplements, may provide the solution for worried women at risk.
“The results of these research works provide confirmation for drinking up to six cups of fresh brewed green tea daily or supplementing with up to 800 mg of a standardized green tea extract to protect against breast and prostate cancers,” says John Phillip, a certified nutritional consultant and contributor to Natural News.
