liver comparison

The results of the experiment are shown clearly in these slides showing liver tissues. Mice that consumed green tea extract and exercised regularly had just a quarter of the lipid deposits in their livers compared to those seen in the livers of a control group of mice. Mice that were treated with green tea extract alone or exercise alone had roughly half as much fat in their livers as the control group.
