Green Tea Decreases Smokers Lung Cancer Risk
Smokers who do not drink green tea may have a 13 fold increased risk of lung cancer compared to smokers who drank one or more cups per day. The benefits may
extend to non-smokers researchers state.
Research data showed that, in addition to an increase in risk for non-green tea drinkers, genetics seemed
to affect the cancer risk. Green tea drinkers with specific types of Insulin Growth Factor 1 (IGF1) reported a 66
percent reduction in cancer risk compared with green tea drinkers with another form of IGF1.
This study was a hospital based, randomised trial, based on earlier research suggesting green tea
decreased lung cancer risks in smokers.

Most green tea (EGCG) cancer research studies show it takes 6 or more cups a day to have an impact on most
cancers. It's good to see that 1 cup of green tea can decrease the risk of lung cancer!
Drinking green with lemon or orange juice (i.e., squeezed lemon or orange slices) may increase the absorption of
the cancer prevention chemicals. You can brew the green tea and drink it hot or cold over ice.
A concentrated green tea capsule is an option for those who don’t drink green tea each day.
Increased IGF1 is a growth factor that increases cancer risks. Taking Human Growth Hormone (HGH) increases IGF1
levels. Do not take HGH for muscle gain and fat loss unless you want to increase your cancer risk.
