Scientists from the University of St. Louis have found that Oolong tea extract can stop the growth of all types of breast cancer.
Scientists studied the effect of green tea and oolong tea on breast cancer cells and found that tea extract can stop the growth of cancer cells in the breast, and black tea does not.
Scientists say that oolong tea and green tea break DNA and interfere with the growth of malignant tumor cells. These data confirm that in the Chinese province of Fujian, where they grow oolong tea, 36 percent of breast cancer patients have less than the rest of the provinces of China.
Scientists also report that those who eat oolong tea have a 68 percent lower risk of developing breast cancer, according to Anticancer Research.
