EgCG Green Tea Colon Cancer Protection?

New EgCG study released today with intriguing findins:

"According to research reported at the Sixth International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention, sponsored by the American Association for Cancer Research, a standardized green tea polyphenol (EgCG) preparation (Polyphenon E) limits the growth of colorectal tumors in rats treated with a substance that causes the cancer."

EgCG has a multitude of exciting health benefits. No matter your age or situation, you need to take a pure EgCG green tea extract daily in my opinion. Check out my previous post here on EgCG.

"The researchers believe these findings will pave the way for clinical trials with green tea polyphenols in humans."

And I for one cannot wait to see the results!
