Xuebo Liu from the Northwest A&F University in Yangling, China said “Green tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world after water, and is grown in at least 30 countries,”

The potential of EGCG to treat a variety of human diseases such as bone marrow disorders, reducing the kidney toxicity and damage caused by cancer drug especially heart conditions, researchers said.
The team separated three-month-old male mice into 3 groups based on a diet: 1) a control group fed a standard diet 2) a group fed a high-fructose and high-fat (HFFD) diet and 3) a group fed with 2 grams of EGCG per liter of drinking water and an HFFD diet.
The mice were being monitored for 16 weeks and find out that those fed with HFFD had a higher final body weight than the control mice and a significantly higher final body weight than the HFFD+EGCG mice.
