TEAS PREVENT CANCER
National Library of Medicine Green tea consumption has been linked to the prevention of many types of cancer, including lung, colon, esophagus, mouth, stomach, small intestine, kidney, pancreas, and mammary glands . Several epidemiological studies and clinical trials showed that green tea may reduce the risk of many chronic diseases.

The minimum daily consumption required to see this benefit was five cups per day.
BENEFITS OF FASTING

FASTING & EXERCISE CAUSE AUTOPHAGY
