Oolong Tea And Green Tea Scam Warning!

You’ve probably seen the advertisements: “Drink oolong tea and lose a jeans size every 7 days!”… “Burn 20 lbs of fat in 30 days with green tea!” … Maybe you even watched Oprah a few years ago when Dr. Perricone said that switching your coffee for green tea would help you take off the pounds. You may have also read or watched countless news stories which say how healthy it is to drink green tea.
