Green tea contains many polyphenol substances with exceptional antioxidant activity, and is consumed widely throughout the world. Green tea aqueous extract and its polyphenols, of which epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) predominates, have been studied extensively in animal models for their anti-neoplastic properties.
