Radiation has become an effective tool for treating cancer but it does have side effects.
Radiation often burns a patient's skin so now UCLA scientists say tea can help soothe the burns that treatment can leave behind.
Research shows that tea extracts can reduce the inflammation of the skin.
It can also cut down on the time it takes for the skin to heal by five to ten days.
For some patients, scientists found green tea extracts were more effective than using black tea.
