A study says, having two cups of black tea or one cup of green tea a day can help cut down risk of developing ovarian cancer in women.

Researchers at the University of Washington studied 2,000 women and noticed a 54 per cent risk reduction in those who drank one or more cups of green tea a day, the Daily Express reported.

A second study by the National Institute of Environmental Medicine in Stockholm discovered that those drinking at least two cups of black tea daily slashed the risk of ovarian cancer by nearly 50 per cent.

Studies have emphasized the cancer-protecting properties of both teas that have also been observed to help the heart, boost the brain and bring down "bad" cholesterol levels.
