One in three Americans get cancer today. How would you like to reduce your chances of being the one? New research suggests you can do it simply by drinking my favorite beverage.
In a recent study, researchers followed 36,745 women using a questionnaire and blood samples. Among these women, there were 494 cases of gastric cancer. They compared these cases to a separate group of 494 women who didn't have the cancer. The scientists found one very telling factor in their cancer.
The researchers found that the blood levels of epicatechin-3-gallate (ECG) made a huge difference in risk. ECG is the most powerful polyphenol (phytochemical from plants) we've discovered. In this study, ECG blood levels of 9.3 ng/mL or greater conferred a 75% reduction in risk.

Your best source of ECG is green tea. My favorite beverage is just loaded with these polyphenols. Researchers continue to discover new uses for this drink. As you can see, it's a fantastic cancer fighter - and not just gastric cancer.
Researchers also found that it works wonders for prostate cancer. In another study, this one following 49,920 men (aged 40-69), green tea stopped the cancer from growing. Those who drank the most green tea (five cups or more) had a 47% lower risk of getting advanced prostate cancer than those who drank less than one cup.
So if you're looking for a great way to stop cancer before it starts, look no further than organic green tea. And you can drink as much of it as you want. The science supporting it just gets better and better.
