Women who drink tea (a couple of cups a day) and consume citrus fruits frequently have a 31% lower risk of ovarian cancer. These are the results of a new English researchDon't store avocado like this: it's dangerous
According to a recent study, those who drink frequently tea and eats many citrus fruits or consumes freshly squeezed juice has a risk definitely minor of developing ovarian cancer. According to researchers from Norwich Medical School - University of East Anglia in the UK, women who consume these foods and drinks benefit from their high flavonoid (antioxidant) content.
The researchers, who saw their findings published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, looked at the eating habits of 171.940 women between the ages of 25 and 55 for more than 30 years. As Aedin Cassidy, coordinator of the project, explained: "This is the first large-scale study that examines whether the habitual intake of different flavonoids can reduce the risk of epithelial ovarian cancer".
Thus it turned out that women who drank tea (a couple of cups a day) and consumed citrus juices frequently, they had a 31% lower risk of getting ovarian cancer. The merit is of two substances contained in them i flavonoli and flavanones, both belonging to the flavonoid family.
It should be noted that the tea that is considered in research is that black. It is therefore not so obvious that most of the benefits, as is sometimes believed, are due exclusively to the green variety.
Once again, research shows us scientifically as some completely natural substances, which we can simply integrate into our diet, are valuable allies in prevention even serious diseases such as ovarian cancer, sadly called the "silent killer" as it does not give symptoms.
Researchers have also concluded that “simple changes in food intake can have an impact on reducing the risk of ovarian cancer” and we add on other types of cancer as well!
