In the early stages of cancer, the DNA is damaged or changed. Latter it becomes a cancer cell. Rapid growth and multiplication of cells may happen in the cancer initiation. Mutagens are agents that cause damage to DNA and cause to cancers. These mutagens are called “Carcinogens”. Some chemicals, radiation, smoke, and viruses act as carcinogens. In later stages of cancer, cell to cell signaling is needed for the multiplication of cancer cells further.

Components of black tea prevent cell to cell signaling and reduce the development of cancer. Tea has anti-angiogenesis properties that form small blood vessels. Then the blood supply for the cancer cell would be poor and their growth will dropdown.
