Does milk in green tea really cancel out the good benefits of green tea? How about sugar?

I herd somewhere that milk in your green tea actually reduces the health benefits. Is that true? And what about adding sugar and cinnamon? Is that ok?

Since I herd the milk thing, I’ve only put 3 teaspoons of sugar and one teaspoon of cinnamon in it, is that fine?

    it cancels out the bad effects of tannins, they will block iron absorption in the body

    Green tea is healthy plain. The milk and sugar won’t cancel green tea’s benefits, they just add their own problems (sugar isn’t good & milk has fat). 3 tsp. of sugar is a lot for a cup of tea.

    The cinnamon is fine, as long as it’s pure, not mixed with sugar. Cinnamon is also healthy.

    Try things like honey instead of sugar. Honey is a healthier food. It’s not better than sugar for a diet or diabetes, but it has its own health advantages (and sugar has none). Lemon is a great addition to tea for flavor.
