Men who are heavy tea drinkers may be more likely to develop prostate cancer, according to new research.A team from Glasgow University tracked the health of more than 6,000 male volunteers over a period of 37 years. They found men who drank over seven cups of tea per day had a 50% higher risk of developing prostate cancer than moderate and non tea drinkers. The team said it did not know if tea was a risk factor or if drinkers lived to ages where cancer was more common.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer amongst men in Scotland and diagnosed cases increased by 7.4% between 2000 and 2010.
