According to studies conducted by local hospitals, universities and national research agencies, Kakegawa city in Shizuoka prefecture has the lowest rate. What’s more interesting is that 7 out of top 15 cities of low cancer mortality rate in Japan are green tea regions. Scientists believe that catechin (antioxidant)in green tea plays a key role in low cancer mortality, and Fukamushi (deep-steamed) green tea grabbed the spotlight because Kakegawa residents drink Fukamushi green tea like water.
Fukamushi (deep-steamed) green tea has fine particles because long steaming process breaks up green tea leaves. If you have ever tried Fukamushi green tea, you must have noticed tiny particles floating in your cup. Scientists found that those particles contain great components such as β-carotene, vitamin E and chlorophyll that are not found in non-fukamushi green tea.
