Green tea and breast cancer: an update

I have posted on this same research group's results previously, but the University of Southern California has a more recent announcement on its website:

Recent research from Wu and colleagues suggested an explanation for the mixed effects on breast cancer rates: It seems that green tea lowers estrogen levels in women’s blood, while black tea elevates it. Estrogen has been found to promote the growth of some breast cancers.

Researchers at the University of Southern California are doing cutting-edge research on how green tea may prevent some forms of breast cancer by reducing estrogen levels.
