Study: green tea protects against stomach cancer

A team of researchers from the UCLA School of Public Health, the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and other prestigious institutions have published a paper in the International Journal of Cancer in which they report the results of a study of over 700 subjects in China.

The doctors were looking for a link between green tea and stomach cancer, and what they found is excellent news for aficionados of green tea.

Not only did their findings "provide further support on the protective effect of green tea against stomach cancer." This was also the first time that "green tea drinking was found to be protective against chronic gastritis," which many doctors believe increases the chances of developing stomach cancer in the future.
