The Benefits of Green Tea as it Relates to Kidney Cancer

Rec'd another Google Alert yesterday with a very interesting topic for kidney cancer patients. 

Apparently, there's been a study completed at a university in Portugal that has examined how green tea may be an very effective anticancer agent for renal cell carcinoma.   

Check out this link to read more 

Research has found that

"green tea extract strongly inhibited the growth of both RCC cell lines in a concentration-dependent manner"

I've often read before that "green tea" is an excellent antioxidant for fighting cancer, but this particular study makes it more specific to kidney cancer patients.

OK...I'm off to the grocery.....got to buy some
