Green tea shocker? Not really

The F.D.A. announced that a company selling green tea can't promote the tea as reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.

But remember: Medical research into the many health benefits of green tea has a short history. It will take a long time to thoroughly study all of the many traditionally accepted health benefits of green tea.

And in almost every other area of green tea research, the news turning up is good: Green tea is good for you in a lot of ways. Just take a look at some of the findings I've posted before about green tea and cancer, diabetes, and cholesterol, just to name a few.

So keep on drinking that green tea. As more and more studies affirm its positive health benefits, you'll be glad you did!
