tea and cancer

A new study from the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University suggests that consumption of green and white tea can be just about as effective as use of the prescription drug sulindac in preventing colon tumors in a certain type of laboratory mouse that is genetically predisposed to cancer. The control group of mice received no treatments, and developed an average of about 30 tumors each. The most effective results were obtained with a combination of tea and sulindac. Date: 2003.
