Plastic and Cancerous Compounds in Tea Bags—
A Surprising Source of Potential Toxins ::
By Dr. Mercola ~

After Water, Tea is One of Your Healthiest Beverage Choices. Your best option would be to opt for loose tea. This does take longer, but it can be well worth the wait.
While some tea bags—whether plastic or paper processed with epichlorophydrin—may pose a potential hazard, please don’t let that deter you from drinking tea altogether.

Although I still believe pure water should make up the majority of your daily fluid intake, high-quality tea has numerous health benefits to offer.
Among them is growing evidence that the polyphenols in tea, which include EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) and many others, can be protective against cancer. For example, the polyphenols in green tea appear to be even more effective at fighting the progression of cancer than the antioxidants found in red wine and grapes.

Beyond this, the beneficial properties in tea have been known to:

* Neutralize the effects to your body of harmful fats and oils
* Inhibit bacteria and viruses
* Improve digestion
* Protect against oxidation in your brain and liver
* Help promote healthy gums

With summer around the corner .. there is nothing more refreshing that a cold glass of ice tea. A great alternative to ‘soda’ which are full of sugar or artifical sweetners. Making your own ‘homemade’ ice teas are yummy delicious and good for you.! Instead of sugar to sweeten your tea .. a good substitute is honey.

If you read the full article above you know the benifits of teas and how good they are for us.
