Green tea fights prostate cancer

A study done at the University of Wisconsin is one of many showing that green tea can prevent prostate cancer.

Researchers found that epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a polyphenol found only in green tea, inhibits tumor growth and metastasis (spread) and also induces apoptosis—cancerous cells "commit suicide" while healthy cells are left alone.

A cup a day keeps the doctor away.
