STUDY: A Chemical Found In Green Tea Makes Tumors Vanish

• http://www.businessinsider.com,
 Powerful new anti-cancer drugs based on green tea could soon be developed after scientists found an extract from the beverage could make almost half of tumours vanish.

The University of Strathclyde team made 40 per cent of human skin cancer tumours disappear using the compound, in a laboratory study.

Green tea has long been suspected of having anti-cancer properties and the extract, called epigallocatechin gallate, has been investigated before.

However, this is the first time researchers have managed to make it effective at shrinking tumours.
 
Previous attempts to capitalize on its cancer-fighting properties have failed because scientists used intravenous drips, which failed to deliver enough of the extract to the tumours themselves.
