Fact: i love green and white tea.
Fact: a friend of mine has been diagnosed of hepatitis C caused by green tea intoxication. He doesn't bodybuild, he just loves (loved) green tea and had several hard-n-heavy cups a day.
I've been having a look and tried to do some research but even tho i'm a researcher myself this is so far from my field of knowledge that i get kinda lost. I've found some references:
acute hepatitis (not even a friking abstract)
If you do a quick search you'll find both positive and negative studies about the matter. I'm not too worried but i'd like to know if this only happens to "hypersensible" people, or it's a matter of dosages (and then how much is too much) etc...
So if a any of you have access to these (or other) full text i think this could be interesting for everyone.
PS: my friend is getting better ATM, doctors are eveluating if there is some permanent damage to the liver or not.
