Green tea and Broccoli reduce breast cancer risk

Certain types of breast cancer cells are notoriously difficult to treat. These cancers can undergo changes that make them impervious to some of the most effective treatments available. Green tea and broccoli contain compounds that can restore treatment sensitivity to treatment-resistant great breast cancer cells. They accomplish this by reprogramming the genes of the malignant cells. In a recent study, difficult-to-treat tumors from mice supplemented with both green tea and broccoli weighed only about a third as much as the same type of tumors from control mice. This indicated that the combination of green tea and broccolicould reduce tumor size in hard-to-treat cancers. The ability to produce such changes makes these compounds promising shading against difficult-to-treat breast cancers and may offer hope to the thousands of women impacted every year.
