The health risks of green tea

In recent years, green tea has taken on superfood status. And not without good reason. It has loads of benefits, including its anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic and anti-oxidant properties. But according to menshealth.about.com, for certain people, green tea can actually be hazardous. Here’s what you need to know to make sure green tea is helping, not harming you.
Do you have an autoimmune condition?
Men with certain autoimmune conditions might not want to drink green tea. In a healthy body, there is balance between the Th1 (T cell) and Th2 (B cell) parts of our immune system. And that’s the desirable state. But autoimmune disorders can tip the scales one way or another. And certain foods can either help restore proper balance, or drive it even further out of whack.
If you have an autoimmune disease that already gives you too many B cells, you probably don’t want to drink green tea because drinking it could throw your immune system even more off kilter and exacerbate your symptoms.
Be wary of bandwagons that suggest certain foods or supplements are either miracle cures or pure poison. Many foods and supplements have a wealth of proven health benefits, but that doesn’t mean they’re good
