- Question from TerryO: Is there any real benefit to noni juice or green tea once you have been diagnosed with breast cancer or metastases?
- Answers - Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. There are at least 2 studies that I'm aware of from Japan that have correlated increased consumption of green tea with decreased occurrence of stage I and II of breast cancer. The amounts consumed in those studies were in the order of 2-5 cups (Japanese style, so little cups) of tea a day. Very reasonable, manageable amounts. These are not intervention studies, these are simply observation studies. But it does appear that there may be some benefit from green tea consumption for reducing the risk of breast cancer.
