WOMEN who drink two cups of black tea or one cup of green tea a day can slash their risk of developing ovarian cancer by half, studies suggest.
Researchers have hailed the cancer-protecting properties of both teas which are packed with health-boosting antioxidants.
One study at the University of Washington among 2,000 women, found those who drank one or more cups of green tea a day had a 54 per cent reduction in their chance of getting the cancer, which kills 4,300 each year in the UK.
Previous research shows the tea also helps the heart, boosts the brain and lowers levels of “bad” cholesterol.
A second study by the National Institute of Environmental Medicine in Stockholm, found that drinking at least two cups of black tea daily cut risk of ovarian cancer by nearly 50 per cent.
