Statistics are not my expertise, I would like to see what he would consider a high risk then... 99% or greater
Every other year it seems there is a study linking wine or coffee to increased risk of breast cancer...which comes a few years after another study or two that show moderate consumption of these *reduces* risk of breast cancer
http://www.arthritis.org/autoimmuni-tea.phpGreen tea has a pale color and delicate taste but new studies show it apparently has a robust ability to tamp down inflammation associated with two autoimmune disorders – rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and Sjögren’s syndrome.
http://nccam.nih.gov/research/results/s ... 120808.htmNCCAM-funded investigators at the University of Maryland and Rutgers University examined the effects of green tea polyphenols on RA by using an animal model in rats. The animals consumed green tea in their drinking water (controls drank water only) for 1 to 3 weeks before being injected with heat-killed Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Ra to induce arthritis. The researchers found that green tea significantly reduced the severity of arthritis
