Green tea doesn't reduce the risk of lung cancer.

In a recent study published in Frontiers in Nutrition, Chinese researchers used a Mendelian randomization-based analysis

Although tobacco smoking has been identified as the leading cause of lung cancer

Studies have revealed that environmental and other lifestyle factors may also play a role in the disease's etiology.  

The high prevalence and morbidity of lung cancer have sparked significant interest in and prioritised the identification of additional modifiable risk factors.  

The study discovered that drinking green tea has no protective effects against lung cancer at the population level.  

No associations were observed between green tea intake and the risk of non-small cell lung cancer or small cell lung cancer

Furthermore, the sensitivity analyses also did not reveal any significant association between the consumption of green tea and lung cancer risk.

The results of this study were in contrast to various observational studies that reported that the consumption of green tea potentially lowered the risk of lung cancer

Furthermore, in previous studies, the protective effect of green tea was found to be especially notable in Asian populations

These findings highlight the importance of the Mendelian randomization approach, which eliminates the bias introduced by confounders
