In certain studies, scientists have found that black tea is a healthy drink that reduces the risk of ovarian cancer. In one experiment, women who drank tea for a longer period of time and practiced this habit every day – drank a cup of tea regularly – could enjoy significant medical benefits from this healthy habit.
Researchers observed a thousand women at the age of 59 on average, divided into two groups: half of the women surveyed were diagnosed with ovarian cancer and the remaining 500 healthy women (control group ).
Black tea reduces the risk of ovarian cancer.
The researchers thoroughly questioned the women about their tea drinking habits – how often and what kind of tea they drink, and when they introduced this habit into their lives.
The results of this study showed that healthy women consumed tea for a longer period of time and practiced this habit every day, that is, they drank tea regularly compared to women with cancer. In fact, healthy women began drinking the tea regularly from an early age in their childhood.
Even 79% of the total number of healthy women screened drank tea regularly, compared with 51% of women surveyed with ovarian cancer.
The researchers pointed out that black tea contains powerful flavonoids, components that help us fight disease. They believe that the healing and protective role of black tea is due to these powerful antioxidants found in black tea.
“Tea is a safe and cheap drink. You should practice the habit of drinking tea because of its potential benefits in preventing this common and deadly disease in women.
If the taste of black tea is too strong, you can freely add a little milk. Previous studies have shown that milk does not reduce the beneficial effect of black tea, and plant milks can also be used.
Ovarian cancer is the third most common type of cancer among malignant tumors of the female genitalia, after cancer of the cervix and endometrium (cancer of the uterus).
Ovarian cancer is primarily a disease of premenopausal and postmenopausal women. The average age of ovarian cancer patients is 50-65 years.
Less than 10% of ovarian cancer patients are younger than 40 years old. The incidence and risk of ovarian cancer increases rapidly after age 40.
Ovarian cancer is a disease that terrifies women. It is enough to see the statistics on the increasing number of ovarian cancer cases and the fear is even worse. In addition to this, the fear grows even more due to the fact that, until recently, it was believed that ovarian cancer did not have any early symptoms.
However, it is a malignant disease that can be treated and cured if it is detected early, that is, in the initial stage of the disease.
The first symptoms are not specific and are often similar to other diseases and health conditions in the body. Therefore, if you don’t ignore the early signs and symptoms, doctors can detect ovarian cancer early.
There are more than 20 symptoms associated with early-stage ovarian cancer, including: fatigue, back pain, constipation, frequent and urgent urination, and many others. These symptoms are so common and obscure that they are often overlooked or considered unimportant by women and doctors.
