Green Tea and Prostate Health
by Paul Rodgers
supplement for prostate health is Saw Palmetto berry extracts.

New research suggests that green tea may help prevent the spread of prostate
cancer. Specifically phytochemicals in green tea, called polyphenols attack growth
factors and proteins, interrupting growth processes of tumors, thus preventing them
from spreading to other organs. Since earlier studies suggests that the same natural
plant substances might also help prevent the start of prostate cancer, researchers
indicate that more studies are needed on green tea's affect on fighting this common
cancer. The best way to reduce your risk of prostate cancer still lies in eating a
mostly vegetarian diet.

Studies on diet and cancer also show that green tea when tested with mice with an
aggressive form of cancer can decrease the spread or metastasis of prostate cancer
to liver, bone, and other parts of the body. Additional study of green tea may help
develop a treatment to prevent the dormant, non threatening type of prostate
cancer many men have in their 70's & 80's from becoming aggressive and fatal.
Around six cups of green tea per day would contain the equivalent amount of
polyphenols for individuals to help block the spread of cancer. Other data shows that
the phytochemicals in green tea could inhibit the early phases of prostate cancer
development.

Green tea contains compounds known as polyphenols which are antioxidant and are
credited with protecting against cancer, heart disease and aging. Green tea diet is
also widely recognized as a substance that can protect against many different
cancers such as stomach cancer, ovarian cancer, cancer of the colon, oral cancer,
prostate cancer, and breast and cervical cancers.

Japanese men, who commonly drink four to six cups of green tea daily, have a
significantly lower mortality rate from prostate cancer than Westerners. And the
incidence of prostate cancer in China, whose population consumes green tea
regularly, is the lowest in the world. Whatever the benefits of green tea, it would be a
mistake to rely on tea alone for prevention. Studies show that other food nutrients,
including saw palmetto, potassium, zinc, selenium, soy and green tea may also lead
reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer...

Prostate health is something that
should be treated with a balanced diet
your whole life. Keeler sums it up:
"Prostate health is an issue that men
should consider throughout their
lifetime, not just when symptoms
appear. Because of this location,

many problems.

With the graying of the baby
