I see a lot of these explanations of the health benefits of tea and which ones are supposedly in question. But if you look at basic generalizations you see the real story. The Chinese historically don't have the Western diseases much like cancer and heart disease because most of them drink a lot of tea. It's not surprising the FDA in the US denies the tea health benefits as conclusive because they're motivated by all kinds of political and worldly purposes, like money. I'd contest that if anyone cuts out the processed food and drinks a lot of tea every day for years, they're going to avoid the major Western diseases. It's that simple.

That is a very interesting perspective. I'm no scientist, but it makes sense to me. Thank you for commenting.

Many experts suggest that concentrated green tea extracts be taken with food, and that people should discontinue use and consult a heath care practitioner if they have a liver disorder or develop symptoms of liver trouble, such as abdominal pain, dark urine, or jaundice.
Many people don't know that green tea and green tea extracts contain caffeine. Caffeine can cause insomnia, anxiety, irritability, upset stomach, nausea, diarrhea, or frequent urination in some people.
Green tea contains small amounts of vitamin K, which can make anticoagulant drugs, such as warfarin, less effective.
