Is excessive green tea consumption bad for health?

I end up having a lot of green tea during my work hours throughout the day. Is it bad for my health?

Yes and no. You could increase cardiovascular risks with excessive caffeine intake. The answer lies within your genetic makeup. If you have the AA variant of the Gene CYP1A2, rs2472300, which makes you a slow caffeine metabolizer, it is recommended to keep your caffeine intake to less than 200 mg per day. That is about 64 ounces of green tea per day. Side note I would advise you try to drink more water than tea. Thank you for your question!
