What has research shown?
Men who are at high risk of developing prostate cancer can reduce their chance dramatically by drinking green tea every day. Catechins, compounds found in the tea, block cancer cell growth and stop it spreading, say researchers from the H Lee Moffitt Cancer Centre.
Researchers point out that 20 per cent of green tea is drunk in Asian countries where prostate cancer deaths are among the lowest in the world.
