Using the cooked meat carcinogen PhIP to turn normal breast cells cancerous, researchers explore the use of green tea to interrupt this malignant transformation.
Nota del Doctor
What is this PhIP stuff? See four previous videos for some background:
- Estrogenic Cooked Meat Carcinogens
- PhIP: The Three Strikes Breast Carcinogen
- Reducing Cancer Risk in Meat-Eaters
- Heterocyclic Amines in Eggs, Cheese, and Creatine?
Might white tea work even better? See Antimutagenic Activity of Green vs. White Tea.
Any other plants that might be able to smack on the cancer kibosh? (I mean besides broccoli; so, for example: DNA Protection from Broccoli, and Broccoli vs. Breast Cancer Stem Cells). Stay tuned for my next video, Cancer, Interrupted: Garlic & Flavonoids.

PS: Those of you with mobile devices will have noticed immediately the major upgrade to NutritionFacts.org yesterday. The entire site was redesigned to incorporate “responsive web design.” This means that NutritionFacts.org will now automatically resize to fit whatever device you’re on. There are now close to 50 million people in the U.S. alone that watch videos on their mobile devices. Sure, we could make a special iPhone app, an iPad app, an Android app—but, there are now thousands of smartphones and tablets out there. Enter: responsive web design. NutritionFacts.org now automatically resizes to fit your screen—any screen! Try resizing your browser right now. See? Isn’t that cool?! Thanks go to our resident web designer genius, Christi Richards, and the generous support of The Jesse and Julie Rasch Foundation, without which NutritionFacts.org wouldn’t even exist.
