Green tea--yippee!

Hi Guys,

There's a new article out from scientists in Korea. It showed that green tea extracts (EGCG and polyphenon E) helped with regression of HPV-positive cervical lesions, if applied as an ointment (don't know the details of that) or taken as a capsule. It was a small study but hey, green tea is an easy thing to make!

Hey Beth!

Hopefully they will get that ointment on the market soon.

where did you read that? As someone with an HPV-generated cancer, I'd love to see it.

Hi Stella,

There's a link posted below, it's at Pub Med. Let me know if you can't get to it and I'll cut and paste and send you a PM.

Thanks--went right to it. Interesting--wonder if it would do anything to keep HPV at bay? That would be wonderful.

Hi Stella,

I think the results indicate that it maybe affects HPV--because to get on study the women had to have a cervical lesion positive for HPV, so who knows?? I'm gonna have me some green tea though!!
