The Heart Care Foundation of India and Federation of NCR Doctors say that drinking tea reduces the risk of bile stones and cancer, especilly among women. Bile stones which are often seen in women and have been linked to obesity, occur in the ducts that transfer bile from the liver to the small intestine. If the stones block the opening of the gall bladder, they can cause discomfort and pain, typically located just below the rib cage on the right side of the abdomen.
At this stage, the gall bladder removal or cholecystectomy is often required. Serious complications from bile stones are uncommon. Biliary tract ulcers are rare but very fatal.
Studies have revealed that consumption of tea especially green tea is protective against a variety of cancers. Tea drinkers are defined as those who drank at least one cup of tea per day for 6 months. Certain chemicals in the tea may prevent cells from growing abnormally and may have antinflammotory effects that reduce the risk of these bile tract disease.
