Tea Consumption Reduces Risk of Cancer: Expert

Consumption of tea, particularly black and green, greatly reduces the risk of cancer in human beings due to the presence of anti-oxidant agents, according to a researcher with a US university.

"Tea is a popular beverage worldwide and its ingredients have been found to contain medicinal benefits", Hasan Mukhtar, a researcher with the University of Wisconsin said.

Speaking at a seminar organised by Indian Tea Association (ITA) in Kolkata today, Mr Mukhtar said that cancer-preventive effects of green tea had emerged from cell culture of animals and human beings.
