Green tea may fend off bladder conditions


Posted by Nancy B.

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine say green tea may help prevent bladder inflammation. "Although further studies are needed, the results indicate herbal supplements from green tea could be a treatment option for various bladder conditions that are caused by injury or inflammation," said Dr. Michael B. Chancellor, professor of urology and gynecology in a Health Day news story at Forbes.com. Catechins found in green tea protected both normal and cancerous bladder cells from inflammation in the study, he said. http://www.forbes.com/forbeslife/health/feeds/hscout/2007/05/20/hscout604755.html
