Drinking more than five cups of tea 'cuts risk of prostate cancer by a third'


Drinking five or more cups of tea a day lowers the risk of advanced prostate cancer by a third, research shows.

Men who drink five or more cups daily have a 33 per cent lower risk of developing stage IV prostate cancer, scientists found.

They also have a 25 per cent reduced risk of reaching stage II, compared with those who drink just one cup a day.

Stage II is where the tumour has grown inside the prostate gland but not spread. By stage IV the cancer has typically spread to the lymph nodes, bones or liver.
