Green tea may slow prostate cancer's progress

June 22, 2009 Researchers in Philadelphia found that Polyphenon-E, a chemical in green tea, may be key.

The study consisted of a group of 26 men who all had to go through prostate surgery. Some of the men took capsules containing the amount of Polyphenon-E found in about 12 cups of green tea.

Doctors found that the men who took the capsules had a significant reduction in the progression of their prostate cancer.

The study is published in the US Journal Cancer Prevention Research.
