Many people in Greece enjoy herbal teas, especially chamomile tea. Not surprisingly, researchers have found that the rate of thyroid cancer in Greece is much lower than those found in the United States or Europe. It was found that persons who drank chamomile tea six times a week had a 70 percent less chance of developing thyroid cancer and those who consumed the tea regularly for thirty years had an 80 percent lower risk.

It is suspected that flavonoids in the chamomile such as apigenin, found also in celery, fruit, herbs and parsley, contributes to its anticancer potency. In animal studies, apigenin has been found to shrink cancerous tumors.
