An antioxidant found in green tea may increase levels of p53, a natural anti-cancer protein, known as the “guardian of the genome” for its ability to repair DNA damage or destroy cancerous cells.
“This is a very interesting study, considering that the major components of green tea include a family of polyphenols, of which EGCG is very abundant and biologically very active, and the fact that it is able to modulate p53" - Antonio Giordano M.D., Ph.D., Director and Founder of Sbarro Health Research Organization (SHRO).
“With each new finding in this area, it becomes more and more evident how maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important. In our food, there is the potential for naturally present substances with important pharmacologic properties which can complement our body’s natural defenses, and even make cancer treatment more effective,” - Antonio Giordano
