Drinking Tea with Tea Bag is Dangerous for Our Health

Tea bag

Tea certainly has its benefits, from plenty of  antioxidants to less caffeine than our average cup of coffee. But according to a recent study by the American Chemical Society, it also has some hidden dangers, particularly if we are brewing our cuppa with  tea bags.

Researchers at McGill University  found that a single tea bag can release 11.6 billion microplastic and 3.1 billion nanoplastic particles into the water.

The particles come from the polypropylene that use to seal tea bags closed. These microplastics are dangerous for our health and can cause stomach, liver and pancreas cancer, disturbing our  harmone level and in long term use can cause endocrine cancer , allergic reactions in skin and body  etc.

Loose leaf tea, of course. Not only  a chemical-free, fresher option, but it often produces a stronger, more flavorful cup of tea.
