Did you know that some of the most popular tea products are teeming with pesticides? These tainted tea products contain synthetic fluoride, a toxic chemical that causes bone disease, including fused vertebrae, bone spurs, calcified ligaments, and stiff joints.
Studies show that cheap tea contains more synthetic fluoride due to poor preparation. Using loose leaf tea and brewing tea from scratch is the better option than bagged tea. Health experts also say white tea has the least amount of fluoride.
Cheap Tea Contains Fluoride and Pesticides
Most teas are not washed before being dried, thus non-organic teas contain pesticide residues. Some tea brands (even those claimed organic or pesticide free!) have recently been found to contain pesticides that are known carcinogens – in quantities above the US and EU limits!
A new study published in the journal of, Food Research International, found that cheaper blends contain enough fluoride to put people under the risk of many illnesses such as bone tooth, kidney problems and even cancer.
In fact, some brands of cheap tea contain nearly 7 parts per million (ppm) and the allowed level of fluoride is 4 ppm. This is quite scary since fluoride gets into your bones and accumulates in your body. It stays there for years.
