Canadian study that followed thousands of Chinese women over a decade. ... found that of the more than 69,000 women, those who drank green tea at least three times a week were 14% less likely to develop a cancer of the digestive system.

The result does not look that impressive. Could be just a general effect of this antioxidant. Can eat fruits and berries with a better effect, which is also mentioned in the article.

Is it really matter? My mom was very fond of green tea. After each meal, she drank dark green tea. However, she suffered cancer and died 2 years ago. I can't understand why she suffer cancer because she was very health concious person and took a lot of vegetables with right life-stlye. She didn't drink and smoke at all. I am wondering even now why she took such this disease. One of the main reason I came up to mind is gene. Because my grandfather (mom's father) also suffered cancer. So, I am afraid to take me as a patient of cancer, someday. I would like to hope to have innovative measures in the near future.
