What is your opinion on the research findings showing evidence that egcg in green tea shrinks and sometimes causes tumor cells to undergo apoptosis?

Very encouraging: We are learning more & more how herbs & certain foods can prevent & even treat cancers. Egcg is one of many natural substances with impressive anti-cancer activity. Others include turmeric, quercitin, cruciferous vegetables, lycopene, resveratrol, garlic & medicinal mushrooms.

Will mega-T green tea supplements cause a drug test to be positive?

Will mega-T green tea supplements cause a drug test to be positive?

Not that I know of: Unless they are testing for caffeine, which would rarely, if ever, be done.

However, I have never seen any reports of false positives secondary to any kind of tea. In any case, false positives on screening tests can be ruled out with confirmatory tests. Read more
