Green Tea, Mushrooms Decrease Breast Cancer, Study Says

Monday, 23 March 2009

According to a study published in the March issue of the International Journal of Cancer, Chinese women who consumed mushrooms and green tea had a lower risk of breast cancer than those who did not.
The results were based on face-to-face interviews conducted in 2004 and 2005 with 1,009 female patients age 20 to 87 with histologically confirmed breast cancer, as well as with an equal number of healthy women in the same age group. Researchers asked the women questions about mushroom and tea consumption, diet and lifestyle.
Explaining the lag between the time the surveys were conducted and the publication of the results, lead researcher Dr. Min Zhang said the study was completed in September 2005, analyzed in 2006, and the publishing process filled the rest of the interim.
"It is quite normal for a chief investigator, who takes responsibilities for several large research projects at the same time, to publish the research findings after field work completion with three and a half years," said Zhang, who is the director of the Lu Cha Sino-Australian Research Collaboration in the School of Population Health at the University of Western Australia.
The results of the study suggested that higher dietary intake of mushrooms and green tea was associated with an additional lower risk of breast cancer in Chinese women, he said.
"This study does not prove a cause-and-effect relationship," Zhang stressed. "The word 'suggest' is very important, as I would not want to go beyond the inference that certain types of mushrooms that are popular in china could possibly be protective and could possibly help explain why Chinese women are at less risk of breast cancer. These are just possibilities, not strong likelihoods."
He added that there may be other reasons for the low breast cancer rate in Chinese women for which the evidence is much stronger, including lower body mass index, drinking green tea and "even the simple explanation of just having smaller breasts."
The abstract of the study added that further research exploring the relationship between mushrooms, tea and breast cancer was warranted.

  1. Breast cancer is a disease more difficult to tackle because the symptoms of this disease but I am very painful but there are medications that may be satisfactory to subtract against the symptoms of the disease for example I take vicodin and norco which are drugs very good in these cases.
