benefits of 5 cups of tea a day to prevent prostate cancerDrinking five or more cups of tea per day can reduce the risk of a man known for malignant prostate cancer, according to new research. Men who drank five cups of tea a day had stage IV prostate cancer risk 33 percent lower.
In addition, drinking five cups of tea every day can also reduce the risk of prostate cancer stage II to 25 percent, compared with men who drank just one cup per day.
Stage II prostate cancer occurs when a tumor is growing in the prostate gland, but did not spread. In stage IV, the cancer has spread to other areas such as the spleen, bone, and liver, as reported by the Daily Mail.
Chemicals called flavonoids in tea are believed to prevent cancer cells to form tumors. The good news, tea benefits will not be reduced even if you add sugar, milk, sweeteners, or lemon into it.
This result is known by researchers in the Netherlands after analyzing data from 58 279 men and found 3,362 cases of prostate cancer, including 1,164 advanced cancer. Researchers compared data from participants as well as their levels of prostate cancer naturally.
