Green Tea May Help Cut Risk for Lung Cancer

Consumption of green tea may help lower the risk of lung cancer even for persons who smoke according to a research presented at the American Association for Cancer Research.

The study found that individuals who did not drink green tea had a five-fold higher risk of developing lung cancer. Smokers who did not drink green tea had a 12-fold higher risk of developing lung cancer. Whether smoker or non-smoker, this study shows that there is a benefit to drinking green tea. This, however, does not give us an excuse to continue with the smoking habit. Intake of any form of supplement, maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle will never eliminate the cancer-causing effects of smoking on the body.
