Inhibition by white tea of 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine-induced colonic aberrant crypts in the F344 rat.

Abstract

There is growing interest in the potential health benefits of tea, including the anticarcinogenic properties. We report here that white tea, the least processed form of tea, is a potent inhibitor of 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP)-induced colonic aberrant crypts in the rat. Male Fischer 344 rats were treated for 8 wk with white tea (2… (More)
