MYTH 3- They say that drinking green tea is a healthier choice
FACT 3- “Seeing is believing” but not always. One such example is Green tea and it’s health claims.
For we only see commercials on TV, tabloids, digital platforms screaming about the goodness of green tea over black, but the facts are often ‘boring’ and not get covered by media.
As a matter of fact, US FDA has time and again rejected green tea health claims. This is what it says-
“There is no credible scientific evidence to support qualified health claims about consumption of green tea or green tea extract”- US FDA
So the next time you are advised to eat any food with so called ‘health’ claims, take the advise with a grain of salt. Because the silent the food, the better it is 🙂
