Many cancer protocols recommend green tea / EGCG for its many purported benefits - including its impact on the glutamine pathway. However, complexity is added here with it comes to genetics / epigenetic SNPs. Daniel, or others, are you familiar with the COMT mutation? Homozygous mutations mean that a person doesn't detox as well, especially hormones - and green tea can further inhibit this process. So we are torn on taking Green Tea, given COMT mutations due exist for us. 

Wondering if any here have looked into epigenetics - things like COMT, MTHFR, etc.? Thoughts on Green Tea?
