the ONA take:

In a case-control cohort study utilizing 854 incident cases, consumption of various teas and the corresponding effect on colorectal cancer risk was examined. The consumption of black tea (with and without milk), green tea, herbal tea, iced coffee, hot coffee, and milk were examined.

Findings showed an increased cancer risk with coffee consumption (though this finding disagrees with previous research); no major effect from the consumption of green tea, black tea, decaffeinated coffee, and milk; and a decreased risk of distal colon cancer with herbal tea consumption.

People who drink herbal tea, even as little as once a week, may have a reduced risk of distal colon cancer, according to local collaborative research.

The study explored the effect of hot coffee, iced coffee, herbal tea, and black tea on the risk of proximal colon, distal colon and rectal cancers.

Curtin University Professor Lin Fritschi says the relationship between herbal tea and decreased risk of bowel cancer was their most statistically significant finding and may warrant further investigation.
