In a recent study, scientists showed that human colon cancer cells die when they are exposed to the approximate number of bioactive compounds present in one cup of yerba mate tea.
“The Dicaffeoylquinic acids found in mate tea not only induced death in human colon cancer cells, they also reduced important markers of inflammation,” said Elvira de Mejia, study author.
- And as we know, chronic inflammation has been linked to cancer, diabetes, depression, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s, etc.
- And as we also know, most of us have been touched by cancer at some time. And it sucks.
Personally, someone I love has been recently diagnosed with cancer and we are investigating treatment methodologies – standard and alternative.
I only wish I had found out about this sooner.
Spread the word – drink some mate – don’t get cancer
