Health  Benefit of Japanese Green Tea

Health Benefit of Japanese Green Tea

Of course health benefits of green tea is well known by the people who likes to drink green tea. In general green tea is said to have effect to prevent cancer. I would like to introduce one interesting stats about how green tea might be related to preventing cancer.
●Mortality rate of cancer in Japan
There is a stat that is announced by the Japanese government that shows the mortality rate due to cancer by towns and cities (with population over 100 thousand people). Of the top 15 cities that has the lowest mortality rate of cancer, 7 cities are known as a tea production area:
- Fujieda, Shizuoka Prefecture
– Hannda, Shizuoka 
– Hamamatsu, Shizuoka 
– Tokorozawa, Saitama 
– Kagoshima, Kagoshima 
– Tsu, Mie 
– Suzuka, Mie 
Of the seven, of course Shizuoka Prefecture will be in there the most with 3 cities.
Health condition not only is effected by what you drink but also is effected on what you eat, your mental stress level, how much sleep you get, etc..So it’s difficult to say logically that green tea is the main reason of this result, but its pretty interesting that it clearly shows a common factor of green tea production area within the top ranked cities.
There are still on going experiments in Japan that looks into the health benefits of green tea. We will update again if any interesting results are announced.
Thank you for reading.
