Experts from the Center for cancer research John Hopkins University found that green tea, coffee and some food flavorings can cause excessive production of p53 gene associated with unconvolved and thus very dangerous to humans. The gene appears from the cells, when destroyed DNA. He begins to produce even stronger, if the damage is serious. The author of this study Scott Kern notes that scientists, as humans, know very little about the products that they consume, and that is why it is necessary to reevaluate and rethink their impact on the human body.
The researchers found that products such as fish sauce and Tabasco sauce, smoked paprika, wasabi and black beans not greatly contribute to the development of the mentioned gene. At the same time, the so-called "liquid smoke", which smoked products, as well as tea, coffee, cigarette smoke and hair dye increases by several tens of times the production of p53. The reason Gallic acid and pyragollole that they contain.
Taking into account the fact that the studies are at an early stage, to completely abandon the consumption of tea and coffee is not necessary.
