Oolong tea extract may fight breast cancer because it stops tumours growing, claim scientists
Oolong tea extract has 'great potential' in the prevention of breast cancer, scientists believe.
Labvoratory tests showed the Chinese tea, used for centuries for its supposed health benefits, stopped the growth of breast cancer cells
Researchers found the extract hampered the DNA of the cancer cells, inhibiting the growth and progression of tumours.
Green tea showed similar promise, the scientists said. However, black and dark tea had little effect on the cells.
