Delicious Drink “Cancer-Proofs” Your Genes

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

We all know that our genetic makeup — fair or unfair — plays a huge role in our health.

Just one little flaw in our genetic code can lead to serious, deadly diseases… even cancer.

But what if you could actually dodge cancer and other illnesses by simply changing the way your genes work?

Sounds like some kind of futuristic science fiction, right?

But as it turns out, there may be an easy way to “edit” your genes and keep cancer from ever developing.

And believe it or not, all you have to do is enjoy a delicious drink.

Tea is the tasty, cancer-fighting drink I’m talking about.

And previous studies have shown that drinking tea can do everything from helping stop tumor growth to fighting inflammation.

More recently, research published in the journal Human Molecular Genetics shows that there’s another reason you should be drinking tea — your genes.

For the study, researchers looked at the tea consumption of over 3,000 participants.

Next, they analyzed their blood looking for chemicals that indicate changes in how our genes express themselves.

After taking a closer look, the researchers found something incredible…

Women who drank tea experienced positive changes in two genes linked to cancer and estrogen metabolism. It’s as if tea could “edit” their genes, creating a healthier version of their DNA.

This means by simply drinking tea, you can hack your DNA and could even help your body fight cancer.

The researchers report they didn’t find the same results in men, but added that women drink more tea than men, which could account for this outcome.

But that shouldn’t keep anyone from drinking more tea. Tea helps fight inflammation and neutralize free radicals — two of the key drivers of all disease.

This study didn’t specify a certain amount or type of tea. So enjoying lots of black, green or herbal should put you on the fast track to healthier DNA.

You can find tea at your local grocer or through online retailers like rishi-tea.com.

Live well,
