Green tea is healthier because it eats well, gets plenty of exercise, and at least 8 hours sleep every night. Black tea is a couch potato, eats too much, and drinks and smokes.

Green tea has a lot of health benefits because they are full of health-promoting antioxidants. Drinking green tea can help you lose weight, reduce risk of diseases like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, and it is best to drink 3-5 cups of green tea per day.

Tea leaves are prepared much the same way as coffee beans that are roasted to create different styles of finished product. The longer it is roasted the darker it becomes the more of the essential compounds are lost, that is why a dark roasted coffee contains less caffiene then a light roast.The same holds true for compounds in Tea leaves.

The tea leaves are fired to retain the flavour after the fermentation process is complete.[22] Again the regulation of the temperature plays an important role in the final quality of the tea and on completion, the tea will become black and harder. Wiki this bright eye's!

Not in the Wikipedia article "Tea processing" for example. What you have cited isn't even backed up in [22] Its a poor English translation.
Please check facts properly, rather than cutting and pasting.
Have fun.

Green tea is healthier because it is less processed. Same as in rice brands. Red/Brown (unpolished) rice has more nutrients.
Green tea has more antioxidants than the black tea, which helps the body fight diseases and also keep us younger.

If you mean American beer/lager ... given that I don't much like it, I agree to forgo the moderation and skip it entirely. (A serious beer is a different kettle of worms entirely.)
