Dr. Oz Recommends Matcha Tea For Anti-Cancer Diet Because it is Higher in Antioxidants
Today Dr. Oz focused on cancer and how to reduce the risk of getting cancer on The Dr. Oz Show.
Dr. Oz and a panel of experts in the field of cancer treatment first discussed lung cancer. They said that although lung cancer is most often caused by smoking, people can also be placed at risk by elements in their environment, most commonly asbestos and radon. A common radon detector can be used in the home to check for high levels of naturally occurring radon.
People deficient in alpha-1 antitrypsin are also at a greater risk of developing lung cancer. Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency is a condition caused when a body doesn’t make enough of a protein that protects the lungs and liver.
Colon cancer was also covered. To help one reduce the risk of colon cancer, avoiding eating red meats, especially processed meat, was advised. Instead, a diet high in vegetables was recommended. Drinking 4 to 6 cups of green tea daily was also suggested, and if one doesn’t drink that amount each day, Matcha green tea was suggested, as it is higher in antioxidants.
Dr. Oz said that Vitamin D is a key factor in preventing all types of cancer, as it works with the natural cancer fighting defenses of the body. Exposure to sunlight is the best way to get Vitamin D naturally, but when that isn’t possible, Dr. Oz recommended taking 1000 units of Vitamin D daily in supplement form.
In addition to supplements, Dr. Oz said that good sources of Vitamin D were milk products and fish.
