Tea: A Natural Cancer Fighter?


Posted by Nirmala N.

For years, studies have shown that tea-drinking mice experience less skin cancer than mice that drink water only. Green and black teas seem to fight cancer at similar rates. And don't worry about the caffeine - decaf teas don't seem to be as effective when it comes to fighting cancer.

Definitely stick to green and black teas to garner the greatest health benefits. These teas are the richest in antioxidants. Herbal and fruit teas have other benefits, but if your major concern is cancer fighting, black and green are best.
