Unlikely: It is unlikely that tea will affect your health. Be sure to let your doctor know, when you see her/him next time. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV and Covid vaccines. Wish you good health!

No: Green tea has caffeine in it so should be avoided, just like coffee and caffeinated sodas. Try switching to herbal teas or find a green tea that specifically says it is decaffeinated.

Could you tell me how much green tea should you drink to lose weight?

When hungry, thirsty: Drinking green tea (choose one that contains no sugar and little or no caffeine) can help with weight loss if it is substituting for other drinks that contain calories. Drinking green tea before each meal can also fill up the stomach somewhat, and make a person satisfied with a smaller meal. If substituting green tea for non-fat milk, one would need another source for vitamin d and calcium.

Can caffeine in green tea cure Parkinson's disease?

No: I am not aware of any "cure" for Parkinson's disease. Green tea and caffeine are stimulants of the nervous system. There are some limited studies suggesting some positive effect in preventing it but they are not too convincing.
