Green tea has the same health benefits as fermented (black) tea. Several medical studies indicate that green tea prevents a certain cancers, though which type of cancers is unspecified. As of today, FDA, US Food and Drug Administration, has not endorsed the studies. FDA has further commented that the anti-cancer effect of green tea is unlikely.
