Researchers at the Indian Institute of Toxicology Research Council of
Scientific and Industrial Research have found that Green and Black Tea
Polyphenols (GTP & BTP) are able to kill HPV-positive cervical cancer cells
and inhibit their proliferation.
Researchers at the Indian Institute of
Toxicology Research Council of Scientific and Industrial Research have found
that Green and Black Tea Polyphenols (GTP & BTP) are able to kill
HPV-positive cervical cancer cells. The authors of the study state that "tea
polyphenols exhibit anti-cancer potential against cervical cancer by
inhibition of cell growth and induction of apoptosis." (1) Apoptosis is
programmed cell death, which means the tea polyphenols make harmful
HPV-positive cervical cancer cells destroy themselves before they become a
tumor. This comes as good news for many women, as the Center for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that "the overall HPV prevalence was
26.8% ... among US females aged 14 to 59 years." (2)
For a few years, there has been a vaccine
for HPV. Advertising of the vaccine was generally successful, as indicated
by a CDC study that "awareness of HPV (84.3%) and of HPV vaccine (78.9%) was
high." (3) However, use of the vaccine remains low as the dangers and risks
of receiving it became known, where "girls and women have blamed the vaccine
for causing ailments from nausea to paralysis -- even death." (4) With such
health risks associated with the vaccine, there are safer and simpler
alternatives for preventing and treating HPV, which is the primary cause of
cervical cancer: use of tea polyphenol-containing health supplements.
