The first thing that you drink in the morning is tea or coffee. Both of them are one of the best drinks and they have different health benefits.

Coffee contains a lot of antioxidants and it can protect you from different diseases.

However, people who drink tea in the morning will experience more health benefits, especially if the tea is green.

There was one research conducted in the Columbia University’s Medical Center and they said that the condition of breast cancer among women can be improved if they consume extract from green tea, Polyphenol E.

In this research 40 women with breast cancer received placebo with 400, 600 or 800 mg. of the extract, 2 times in a day for a period of six months. The researchers took blood and urine samples on every few months.

They discovered that compared to the women who took the placebo effect, the women who consumed the extract significantly dropped the levels of hepatocyte factor that is responsible for regulation of the cell growth.

When the research progressed their levels were no longer so different and the researchers saw that women who took the extract decreased the levels of cholesterol and the growth of the vascular endothelial factor – it is a protein that can spread the cancer if it is present in higher levels.

The research was not that big and that is why it is early to say that people should drink green tea in order to fight cancer, but it is clear that it has amazing health benefits. One study that was conducted at the University of Carolina

Los Angeles discovered that men, who had prostate cancer and drank green tea, reduced the inflammation level that is related to growth of cancer.
