Spinach helps prevent colon cancer, the fourth most common cancer. However, people with high levels of uric acid should not eat it very often, 1-2 times a week is enough.
Zukhra Pavlova, candidate of medical sciences, endocrinologist at the Moscow State University clinic, spoke about this in her telegram channel, referring to the findings of researchers from the Texas Medical Research Center. As part of the experiment, spinach was included in the diet of rats with a predisposition to adenomatous polyposis (polyps in the colon).
“After the rodents were constantly given spinach,“ significant antitumor activity ”began in their digestive tract. Scientists advise to start eating spinach“ the sooner, the better, there is no need to wait for polyps to appear, ”the doctor said.
At the same time, the calorie content of 100 grams of spinach is only 23 kcal, which makes it an indispensable product in dietetics. Therefore, it is also called the product of “slimness”.
Also recently, there have been studies related to the effects of green tea on the body. As noted by researcher from Japan, Doctor of Agricultural Sciences Eichi Fukushima, the drink reduces the risk of cancer and stroke.
