A New Tool to Treat Prostate Cancer

I am really surprised as my favorite polyphenoclic bioflavnoid, resveratrol was not as good as tea in treating prostate cancer. Even though resveratrol was not active here, I strongly believe that this is one of the most exciting antioxidants around. But it appears that the polyphenols in tea, called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), may be another useful tool for prostate cancer. It is important to recognize that the nutrients useful to treat prostate cancer are also likely to benefit breast cancer.

So now we can add EGCG to the prostate treatment list:
