    [FONT=verdana, geneva, helvetica]I came across this info from some site..Hope this wil be useful for green tea consumers..:thumbsup[/FONT]

    [FONT=verdana, geneva, helvetica]Is any other food or drink reported to have as many health benefits as green tea? The Chinese have known about the medicinal benefits of green tea since ancient times, using it to treat everything from headaches to depression. In her book Green Tea: The Natural Secret for a Healthier Life, Nadine Taylor states that green tea has been used as a medicine in China for at least 4,000 years. [/FONT]
    [FONT=verdana, geneva, helvetica]Today, scientific research in both Asia and the west is providing hard evidence for the health benefits long associated with drinking green tea. For example, in 1994 the Journal of the National Cancer Institute published the results of an epidemiological study indicating that drinking green tea reduced the risk of esophageal cancer in Chinese men and women by nearly sixty percent. University of Purdue researchers recently concluded that a compound in green tea inhibits the growth of cancer cells. There is also research indicating that drinking green tea lowers total cholesterol levels, as well as improving the ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol.[/FONT]
    [FONT=verdana, geneva, helvetica]To sum up, here are just a few medical conditions in which drinking green tea is reputed to be helpful:[/FONT]
    • [FONT=verdana, geneva, helvetica]cancer[/FONT]
    • [FONT=verdana, geneva, helvetica]rheumatoid arthritis[/FONT]
    • [FONT=verdana, geneva, helvetica]high cholesterol levels[/FONT]
    • [FONT=verdana, geneva, helvetica]cariovascular disease[/FONT]
    • [FONT=verdana, geneva, helvetica]infection[/FONT]
    • [FONT=verdana, geneva, helvetica]impaired immune function[/FONT]​
    • [FONT=verdana, geneva, helvetica]hundred mg. in eight ounces of coffee.

      [FONT=verdana, geneva, helvetica]Harmful Effects? [/FONT]
      [FONT=verdana, geneva, helvetica]To date, the only negative side effect reported from drinking green tea is insomnia due to the fact that it contains caffeine. However, green tea contains less caffeine than coffee: there are approximately thirty to sixty mg. of caffeine in six - eight ounces of tea, compared to over one-hundred mg. in eight ounces of coffee.
