“…Tea-drinking has been linked to a higher risk of prostate cancer after a study that ran for 37 years.
The research by scientists at the University of Glasgow shows that men who are heavy tea-drinkers are 50 per cent more likely than others to develop prostate cancer.
More than 6000 men had their health surveyed over 37 years, including their tea, coffee and alcohol consumption and smoking habits.
Of the heavy tea-drinkers – a quarter of the group drank more than seven cups a day – 6.4 per cent of them developed prostate cancer later in life.
Study leader Dr Kashif Shafique, of the university’s Institute of Health and Wellbeing, said previous research indicated no link between the cancer and black tea – or some preventative in green tea -
- but these findings questioned that.
“We don’t know whether tea itself is a risk factor -
- or if tea-drinkers are generally healthier and live to an older age when prostate cancer is more common anyway.”..”
