We recently came across a very interesting study from 2000 that
sought to determine whether white tea or green tea are more effective at
preventing DNA mutations. In this study they mixed a potent carcinogen
with salmonella, since salmonella has very similar DNA to humans, and
they recorded the number of mutations that occurred in the Salmonella.
Then they did the same tests, but they also mixed in green tea in one
set of tests and white tea in the other, to see if they prevented
mutations, and which one prevented the most mutations.
found is that both white tea and green tea prevented a substantial
number of mutations as compared to the test group. However, white tea
prevented more mutations than green tea, and in some cases completely
stopped any mutation from occurring in the salmonella. This continues to
demonstrate and add to the evidence that both white and green tea have a
positive impact on your health.
