    I don’t care for the taste of green tea so I take two green tea tablets as often as twice a day when I am eating food with fat content such as peanut butter, ice cream, etc.

    Are two or four green tea tablets as effective as drinking green tea? Would four green tea tablets be equivalent to two cups of green tea?

    I love to watch your show. I certainly learn many important health facts especially “How to prevent a heart attack” etc. I am trying to find the section about flossing teeth before going to bed and haven’t found it. Is it on your website?

    I am looking forward to your answer.
