Recent studies have revealed that there is an inverse association between selenium and bladder cancer among women, some smokers, and those with p53 positive bladder cancer. In the entire study population, there was no inverse association between selenium and bladder cancer, but women (34 percent), moderate smokers (39 percent), and those with p53 positive cancer (43 percent) had significant reductions in bladder cancer with higher rates of selenium. While other studies have shown a similar association between selenium and bladder cancer among women, this study is one of the first to show an association between selenium and p53 positive bladder cancer.
On the other hand, researchers say that drinking a cup of black tea protects teeth from rotting and has no effect on the enamel. The finding follows recent study, which suggested that tea is a healthier drink than water because of the antioxidants it contains could protect against cancer. Also, tannins in tea appear to inhibit salivary amylase, an enzyme in saliva, from breaking down dietary starches into sugars in the mouth.
