Yes, you heard that right. With the overwhelming mountains of recent health aspects and benefits related to consumption and use of green tea you will be hearing more and more about it. Green tea easily surpasses milk in how healthy it is for you. Recent medical test even prove that drinking green tea and applying salves from green tea extracts can reverse radiation damage – this is big as one of the main damages from radiation exposure is altered cellular DNA and RNA. This altering of the genetic material causes cancer. That means that green tea can have a very beneficial effect on cancer and precancerous skin. It may also mean a cure for cancer may be in the not so far off future!
It all started with the discovery of antioxidant properties in Chinese black teas. These antioxidant properties were similar to those in grapes, wine and blueberries, but at greater concentrations. Next it was found that Chinese green teas (like Camellia Sinensis) contained these same antioxidants, but also contained very high levels of polyphenols. These polyphenols have been extracted, concentrated and used in multiple experiments and have shown a remarkable ability to thwart, halt, or even reverse the growth of certain cancers (stomach, oral and various skin cancers in particular). This anti cancer activity of green tea polyphenols may turn out to be the discovery of the century. The Chinese have seen the various medical attributes and benefits of green tea as being so vast and important that over 90% of the entire medical research in
China is now green tea related.
To see the longevity or lifespan increasing ability of these green teas, one just has to look to
Japan. It is well known that the bottom half of
Japan is where most of its green tea is grown. Therefore it is also much more plentiful and consumed far more than in northern
Japan. What is interesting here is that it is documented that residents of
South Japan have an 80% lower occurrence of diseases like stomach and colon cancer. Similar findings have been found in
China and elsewhere in the Asian continent. There is no real difference in diet between Northern and
Southern Japan. The only difference is the consumption and use of green tea.

Doctors have also recently found that salves made of green tea extracts or even crushed leaves provide a tremendous healing impact on the skin. These salves and similar are being used in everything from wound repair, burns (works great for faster healing after cosmetic chemical peels), skin cancer, radiation burns, precancerous treatments and even anti aging applications. According to Dr. Ptong of the Skin Education Foundation, “it has been evidenced that Green tea had a very marked effect on the skin in patients in relation to cancer, carcinogens and in health in general.”
With all these health capabilities and benefits of the use of green tea it would be a wise addition to any diet. It has also been put forth that a simple switch of the American diet to adding 2 cups of green tea to the daily diet would cut medical and health care costs literally in half in the
U.S. So why isn’t more being done about this? The largest and most powerful business and political group is filled with hospitals, prescription and drug companies and doctors whom would be on the losing end of that stick and they won’t let that happen any time soon as they have hired the best lobbyists and lawyers to ensure that we pay top dollar for our medical care that a daily regimen of green tea would make unnecessary. But you can always take care of your own health by eating healthy foods and adding green tea to your daily regimen.
