Dangers of Green Tea Extract

>> Monday, April 17, 2017



Unfortunately, in today's society and times, more people are reaching out than ever before for anything to help manage their weight, including naturopathic remedies.  On this list is green tea extract. Sounds like it must be safe, right?  It comes from something natural, after all....

CBC's Marketplace launched an investigation into green tea extract, featuring my colleague in obesity medicine,  Dr Sean Wharton.   They discovered more than 60 documented cases worldwide of liver failure associated with green tea supplements, with at least 2 deaths that may have been related to taking these pills.

Take 20 minutes and have a listen.

The bottom line is this:  Because it's natural does not mean it is safe.
