Leukemia and Green Tea

Monday, 02 April 2012 09:04 AM

Question: I have chronic lymphocytic leukemia. I started taking green tea extract in a dose of 900 mg a day. But I read that it can cause liver damage if you take more than 300 to 400 mg a day. Is that true?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

Considerable research has shown that epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is found in green tea extract, is a powerful inhibitor of leukemia. It is also used in high doses to treat liver damage. Quercetin, a flavonoid found in many leafy vegetables, is another potent weapon against leukemia, as confirmed by a number of studies.
