Ask Dr. Oz: Cancer Edition: Matcha Tea and Cancer-Fighting Foods
December 16th Segment - Dr Oz. did a show called Ask Dr Oz: Cancer Edition, because he knows that Cancer is one of the diseases that we fear most. We all know someone who has been touched by Cancer – or almost everyone at least. 94% of Doctor Oz’s Audience said that either they had cancer themselves or they know someone who had cancer. The biggest questions about how to treat cancer and how to prevent cancer is what Dr Oz focused on today. Cancer treatment is expanding to treating the whole body and not just the disease. In addition to chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, people are also addressing pain management, nutrition, and even doing things like acupuncture, meditation and yoga.
Dr Oz was joined by three cancer experts: Dr Steven Standiford, the national director of surgical oncology at a center that focuses on integrative cancer treatments, Dr Deborah Axelrod co-author of Bosom Buddies: Lessons and Laughter on Breast Health and Cancer and a leading cancer surgeon and patient advocate, and Rachel Beller, a spokesperson for the American Cancer Society and a nutritionist who focuses on nutrition in Cancer Management and Prevention.
Rachel Beller said that green tea is great for you, but you need 4-7 cups a day to make a difference. Matcha Green Tea is great though because 1/4 – 1/2 tsp of Macha Tea is equal to 8-10 cups of regular tea in terms of Antioxidant Power. For some added taste, squeeze some lemon into your Matcha Tea!
