Drinking two or more cups of tea a day can lower a woman's chances of getting ovarian cancer by 46%.

Researchers from Sweden conducted a population-based cohort study involving just over 61,000 women between the ages of 40 and 76 who were participating in the Swedish Mammography Cohort. They found that the more tea the women drank, the less likely they were to develop invasive epithelial ovarian cancer. Hazard ratios for those who drank less than one cup per day, one cup per day, and two or more cups per day, compared with never or seldom drinkers, were 0.82, 0.76, and 0.54, respectively. Each additional cup per day lowered the risk another 18%.

While most tea consumed in Sweden is black, green tea may also be beneficial.
