“I am so glad I found the AntiCancer Lifestyle Program. This is an amazing idea and gift. Our son-in-law at 39 has glioblastoma. After surgery, chemo, and radiation we hope, no relapse. Hope, however, is not a plan. My wife and I are changing to help him change.”
“My patients respond to the Anticancer Lifestyle Program in a way I find unprecedented in 30 years of Radiation Oncology practice. It helps them feel that we are caring for them, and not just delivering cancer treatment.”
“If you are a Human Resources or wellness professional looking to take your employee health and well-being strategies to the next level, the Anticancer Lifestyle Program is unrivaled. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Offering this course to all of our employees really underscores how much we care about them and their loved ones.”
In an epidemiologic study by Yang et al, published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers, and Prevention, almost 70,000 Chinese women, aged between 40-70, were assessed according to their green tea-drinking habits, and followed for 6 years. Researchers assessed their risk for colorectal cancer.
A significant dose-response relationship was found for both the amount of tea consumed and duration in years of lifetime tea consumption–meaning the more tea consumed, the lower the risk of cancer. The reduction in risk was most evident among those who consistently reported to drink tea regularly. The inverse association with regular tea drinking was observed for both colon and rectal cancers–meaning lower tea consumption meant higher risk of colorectal cancers.
This study suggests that regular consumption of green tea may reduce risk in women.
In a separate study, the researchers also found a lower risk of colorectal cancer in non-smoking men who drank green tea.
