** WARNING TO ANYONE WHO HAS EVER TAKEN GREEN TEA EXTRACT**
Wanting to take part in the newest fitness fad, twenty-seven-year-old Matthew Whitby went online and ordered protein supplements.
Whitby’s goal was to build muscle in 2014 so after doing some research and seeking advice, he took two weight-loss products. In the first week, news.com.au reports, he was jaundiced and tired . Two months later he finally saw a doctor and was told he had liver failure.
So what caused the liver failure? According to MSN, it was most likely the green tea extract that is found in the protein supplements. The American College of Gastroenterology reports that green tea extract may actually be toxic and could cause liver damage in many individuals. His life was at such risk he had to take a liver with hepatitis B. “I have to take a tablet everyday for the rest of my life, but I’m just grateful to be here,” the married father of two explains to news.com.au.
Whitby had no idea of the deadly effects of green tea extract, and he laments that there was no warning on the label.
“I didn’t think something you could buy online or just over the counter did the damage that it did to me,” Whitby says. “They didn’t say anything about ‘could cause liver failure.’”
As for Whitby, who is now required to take expensive medications for the remainder of his life, he wants to warn others about the dangers of those seemingly harmless weight-loss supplements.
