Major food companies have grown to be very negligent of the public’s health. Avoid all of these major tea bag brands!

It seems like there are pesticides in everything these days. Just as expected, these major tea bag brands contain illegal amounts of pesticides! These pesticides can be extremely dangerous for your health. It is important to avoid these brands! Their tea contains toxic chemicals!

Brands like Lipton, Twinings, Celestial Seasonings, Trader Joe’s, and many more tea brands contain illegal amounts of pesticides in their products. Their products contain toxic amounts of fluoride in them also; and not just any kind of fluoride. These tea bags contains synthetic fluoride which is more toxic, more dangerous, and more deadly. The levels of this chemical in the tea bags are so high that it could be dangerous for your body.

Cheap non-organic tea is made with high levels of synthetic fluoride, has pesticides in it, and aren’t washed before being dried. This means that there are high amounts of pesticide residue on them. Buying these toxic brands of tea is not worth the dollar you save. These teas are extremely unsafe and should be banned from the public. The pesticides in these products are proved to be carcinogenic, meaning they cause cancer! The research showed that the cheaper tea brands contained amounts of fluoride that even the US government doesn’t approve of – that must be a lot.

Fluoride is a dangerous neurotoxin. The consumption of fluoride leads to lowered intelligence, an increased risk for cancer, disrupted thyroid function, and brain damages. Fluoride is purely toxic. I can not imagine that hidden reasoning of why so many products contain this chemical. According to a study by the Harvard School of Dental Health, fluoride in tap water increases the risk of bone cancer in boys, at levels currently present in fluoridated water supplies. “This is a very specific cancer in a defined population of children,” said Richard Wiles, co-founder of the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a research organization based in Washington, D.C., that made the research available. This is a serious issue and needs to be taken care of.

Tea grows in plantations.  As it grows, fluoride accumulates. The old tea leaves harbor most of the fluoride.  These old tea leaves are what are used to make cheaper teas. Cheap tea is sold in teabag form which may seem easy but because it is made with the low-quality leaves, it contains more synthetic fluoride. Avoid these 19 tea brands at all costs.
