Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 8, 2005
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Tempest Tea is doing its part to support this important cause. During the entire month, 10% of every purchase of green tea, in any format, will go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Recent studies have shown that increased consumption of green tea has positive effects on preventing breast cancer and other forms of cancer. Studies by researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles and the University of Texas in Houston showed that an extract of green tea inhibits breast cancer cells from making a chemical that supports tumors.*
“We have long known that the antioxidants in green tea are good for the metabolism, weight loss and myriad other health benefits.” Says Dr. Brian Rudman, co-founder of Tempest Tea. “With these new studies showing the positive affects on breast cancer prevention, Tempest Tea has redoubled efforts to do its part to spread the word and make a difference.”
