Green tea is widely consumed in Asian countries. It has been hypothesized to have a protective effect against the development of gastric cancer, the second leading cause of death from cancer throughout the world. In a variety of animal models, the administration of green-tea extracts or polyphenols inhibits tumorigenesis in several organs, including the stomach.
