Green Tea Prevents Cancer
Research shows that EGCG, a component of green tea, binds to uPA. Inhibition of uPA can decrease tumor size or even cause complete remission of cancers in mice. Another research shows surveyed 8,552 individuals over 40 years of age living in a town in Saitama prefecture on their living habits, including daily consumption of green tea. During the 9 years of follow-up study (71,248.5 person-years), they identified a total of 384 cases of cancer in all sites. The slowdown in increase of cancer incidence with age observed among females who consumed more than 10 cups a day is consistent with the finding that increased consumption of green tea is associated with later onset of cancer.
During my research, I found out this is something not a lot of people have knowledge of. Thus, I decided to create a poster for spreading the information and a notepad for people to remind themselves throughout the day.
Also, this project we were supposed to pick a mood from the list the professor provided. The mood I got is "Surprised".
