Green tea reduces risk of cancer in blood, bone marrow, and lymph nodes

A new study shows that green tea can cut your risk of hematological malignancy—cancer of the blood cells, bone marrow, or lymph nodes—by as much as 50 percent.

The research, published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, looked at the health histories and green tea consumption patterns of over 40,000 participants.

The folks who gained this benefit were those who drank 5 cups of green tea or more every day.

In other words, a cup a day just isn't going to cut it—you really have to make green tea a part of your life. The good news, however, is that doing so brings so many other benefits, too.
