Men who drink more than 3 cups of tea per day are under the risk of acquiring prostate cancer. The risk of acquiring the disease may be lowered by consuming 1 cup of tea per day, RBK reports.
As Pravda.ru reports, experts came to that conclusion after 37 years long research which started in Scotland in 1970. During the experiment experts observed 6,016 men from the ages 21-75.
The risk grows if a man consumes more than 7 cups of tea per day. The reasons are not known yet. At the same time tea lovers have normal weights and are leaving a healthy life, Rosbalt reports. However, experts advise to reduce the amount of tea consumption to one cup per day.
