Yes and No

Green tea increases the body's utilization of fat - in some very good studies which have been done.  In terms of cancer - the studies are less clear. However green tea instead of soda is a great choice.

Maybe yes, maybe no

You can spend the rest of your day googling green tea and cancer or you can just enjoy your weekend knowing that nobody knows for sure, but chug away on your tea if you like.
