There are numerous papers recently published which attribute Green Tea polyphenols to some anti-Cancer effect. Green tea catechins (like (-)-Epigallocatechin-3-gallate) are known to function as anticancer agents via inhibition of carcinogenesis during the initiation, promotion and progression stages. Many potential mechanisms have been proposed.
