Studies in laboratory animals have suggested inhibitory effects of green tea on the induction of some cancers, notably, esophageal cancer.
However, only a few epidemiologic studies have evaluated green tea as a potential inhibitor of human esophageal cancer.
Our purpose was to evaluate the relationship between green tea consumption and the risk of esophageal cancer.
This esophageal cancer study was part of a larger multicenter, case-control study that included three other gastrointestinal sites (pancreas, colon, and rectum).
