Tea DOES influence genetic expression, but only in women...

Posted by Adrian Lee on June 06, 2017 (4 Comments)


A new clinical study from the University of Uppsala in Sweden has shown that tea does cause epigenetic changes... but only in women. 

In their study, the Uppsala team found that female tea drinkers showed changes in genes that affect cancer and estrogen metabolism. These changes were not found in male participants. This may be because the active compounds in tea only affect estrogen hormones, which is more abundant in the female body. 

Higher estrogen levels positively correlate with a higher risk of certain cancers. Increasing the body’s ability to process estrogen can significantly lower that risk.

Coffee was not observed to mediate epigenetic changes.
