The health benefits of tea stretch across the spectrum — green, black or white all promise to fight free radicals and hydrate you, among other benefits.

Now, new clues are emerging as to just how powerful green tea really is.
It’s long been linked to fighting cancer, but researchers presented new evidence about how green tea prevents or slows the growth of prostate and breast cancers.
Researchers in recent months, used the meat carcinogen PhIP to turn normal breast cells cancerous. This video is an exploration of Green Tea’s use to stop healthy tissue from degrading and turning malignant.
While experts agree that more research is still needed, this only adds to the body of work linking green tea to healthy, happy living.
