Back in 1992, my mom died of ovarian cancer. Back then, very few people survived the disease. While your odds of survival have improved today, more than half of women diagnosed with the disease still die within five years. It's a tough disease to beat once you have it. So it's vital you do all you can to prevent it.
Fortunately, there might be a natural and very simple way to significantly reduce your risk of ovarian cancer. Researchers at the University of East Anglia (UEA) found a way to reduce your risk by nearly one-third. All you have to do is drink tea and eat citrus fruits every day.
For more than three decades, these researchers followed the dietary habits of 171,940 women between the ages of 25 and 55. They found that those who consume food and drinks that are high in flavonols and flavanones were less likely to develop the disease. Those with the highest intake of these plant chemicals had nearly one-third the risk of developing ovarian cancer as those with the lowest intake.

You can find flavonols in tea, red wine, apples, and grapes. And you can find flavanones in citrus fruit and juices.
While the results of this study aren't conclusive, the large number of participants and the long-term follow-up are impressive. And we know that these foods and drinks have shown tremendous anti-cancer abilities in many other studies.
This is particularly good news. Ovarian cancer is a huge threat to women. Many people call it the "silent killer" because you often won't experience any of its symptoms until the disease has progressed significantly.
This particular study used black tea, but green tea is likely just as effective, maybe more so. If you don't drink enough tea or eat enough fruit, you can take a supplement like Advanced Greens Formula. It has green tea and other fruits in it that make it rich in both flavonols and flavanones. This is a great way to help prevent this silent killer.
