    got this from googling

    [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]Other Benefits[/FONT]
    [FONT=verdana, geneva, helvetica]New evidence is emerging that green tea can even help dieters. In November, 1999, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published the results of a study at the University of Geneva in Switzerland. Researchers found that men who were given a combination of caffeine and green tea extract burned more calories than those given only caffeine or a placebo.[/FONT]


    [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.[/FONT]

    I have a couple of mugs of green tea a day. I find it is a bit of an appetite suppressant, as well as helping me get things shifting in the loo department!
