A bazillion Chinese and Japanese have been drinking it for centuries, so it must be good!

There is no evidence to suggest it is harmful to thyroid. If anything it is a great calming drink, helps with feeling full after a meal, hence why the Asians use it after a meal, not many fat Asians till they get on a western diet!

So drink up! It's all good!

It has SEVERAL benefits, however if you are hyper ( i think i remember you to be hyper) it can raise your pulse a little bit. I've had a few hyper friends say they can't take green tea. Those who are ultra sensitive to the smallest amt of caffeine have reported they felt an increase in pulse, but then again, these same ppl are hyperstimulated by a half a can of pepsi. I have graves, and green tea  hasn't given me any problems. Now if I can just start remembering to take it on a daily basis lol.
