Green Tea Blocks Tissue Invasion and Angiogenesis

Green Tea
"Green tea...contains numerous polyphenols called catechins. One of these, epigallocatechon gallate or EGCG, is one of the most powerful nutritional molecules against the formation of new blood vessels by cancerous cells...After two or three cups of green tea, EGCG is plentiful in the blood. It spreads throughout the body by means of capillary vessels. They surround and feed every cell in the body. EGCG settles on the surface of every cell and blocks the switches (the receptors) whose function is to set off the signal that allows the penetration of neighboring tissue by foreign cells, such as cancer cells... Once the receptors are blocked by EGCG molecules, they no longer respond to the orders that cancer cells send through inflammation factors to invade tissue and to make the new vessels needed for tumor growth... It activates mechanisms in the liver that can then eliminate cancerous toxins from the body more rapidly." Anti Cancer; A New Way of Life, David Servan-Schreiber, MD

Green tea must be steeped for at least 5-8 minutes. Drink 2-3 cups a day
