Green tea has been used for centuries as a cure for all types of ills. One of the biggest claims by those who endorse green tea is that it helps fight cancer.

What the studies do support is the fact that drinking green tea actually helps reduce the chances of developing a wide variety of problems including heart disease. Tea in various forms can help people relax and in many cultures is associated with rest time. The average American drinks 155 cups of tea each year. The good news is that tea is relatively safe although I would be concerned about products sold as tea extract in pill form. For more, go to http://www.mymedicalreports.com/.
