Green Tea Health Benefits


Have you ever tried any type of green tea?

Recently, everyday people across the US have been drinking Green Tea for health benefits; weather it is to improve where they stand with their health or to simply stay healthy.

To begin with, let us start with some of the risks that come with drinking green tea, after that we can move to the good part about it, which are the benefits. Starting with the risks may be an easier way for someone who is thinking about drinking green tea to rethink about it if any of the risks apply to them. Not saying throw the idea of green tea out completely, but for personal reasons you should always talk to your doctor before making decisions that deal with your health. As Bryan Walsh writes in his post “There is no one food that is good for everyone.” In his post, Walsh talks about the health risks that one may come across when taking green tea. Trying to summarize the risks, he talks about, simply did not capture all the information that Walsh was explaining. He explained it in such a way that I was unable to it put into words, although, he did give easy to follow diagrams, and real life examples. One thing that did come to my understanding was when he stated “Green tea has a proven track record of benefits for the average person and, if you do not have an autoimmune condition, it seems wise to include green tea into your diet,” He also said that if you have been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, green tea may not be the best idea.
