Megalo lacks an understanding of what type of sources are necessary to convince hard-headed skeptics like you. I did a google search on the term "green tea clinical studies." It turned up a number of review articles which referenced many studies published in peer reviewed journals. I have listed one. Certainly the antioxidant properties of green tea are beyond dispute. There is some evidence for other beneficial effects as well. If you really want an answer, you will read the linked article and go through all the references.

Or maybe you are just here to pick a fight.

Green/Black tea are produced from the Camellia sinensis plant using different methods. Fresh leaves from the plant are steamed to produce green tea, while the leaves of black tea and oolong involve fermentation.

"Alison Hornby, a dietitian and BDA spokesperson, says the evidence about green tea's health benefits is inconclusive.

She says: "In the Far East, green tea has been used as a treatment for a variety of conditions ranging from arthritis to weight loss, as well as a preventative measure for diseases such as cancer, although the evidence for the majority of these conditions is weak or lacking.

"However, as a social drink, it appears to be safe in moderate amounts, so lovers of green tea can continue to enjoy it."

* meglomanianic. your sourced link, is an advertisement and lacks citations to support the claims it makes about the benefits of green tea. The website is also full of health lies and faux nutrition advice.

* m...Science is not about your opinion of science, you wouldn't know that because you have no clue about what the scientific method is. Your own 'training' is based on the beliefs and ideas of a Victorian shop keeper who dabbled in spiritual seances and took messages from dead people.

"medical" evidence? as if medicine's opinion is somehow authoritative. all they know is pushing pills. they know nothing about correcting the most common cause of health problems so people can actually get well.

Here's just one of a thousand articles on green tea that can be generated by a quick google search:

I wouldn't trust any one article on anything but when there is so many corroborating studies I think it is pretty safe to assume that green tea is indeed good for you.
