Study: Polyphenols in Green and Black Tea Kill HPV-Positive Cervical Cancer Cells
Chemicals in tea can stop the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and prevent cervical cancer.
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.
