Reduced risk of esophageal cancer associated with green tea consumption.
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).
