Green Tea May Lower "Bad" Cholesterol, New Analysis

Piss, er, kiss, your LDL goodbye!
A new analysis of published studies finds that consuming green tea, either as a beverage or in capsule form, is linked to significant but modest reductions in total and LDL or "bad" cholesterol, but the researchers found no link with HDL or "good" cholesterol and triglycerides. Dr Olivia J. Phung, of the College of Pharmacy at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California, and colleagues, write about their findings in the November issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association...

However, Phung and colleagues note that although randomized controlled trials have examined the effect of green tea catechins on blood fats or lipids, including cholesterol, these have been small and shown conflicting results.
Or not.
