Help with your weight. Overweight or obese exercisers burned off three more pounds and 7 percent more belly fat when they drank green tea instead of another beverage with the same calories, according to a new multicenter study.

Protection against cancer. Regular drinkers were 12 percent less likely to develop breast cancer than nondrinkers, according to research in 6,928 Chinese women.

Reduced risk of stroke. A UCLA review of nine studies found three cups a day cut the risk of stroke by 21 percent (black tea was protective too).
