Nowadays, we are surrounded by pesticides, from the food we buy in the grocery stores, in the parks outside out homes, and school playgrounds.
Therefore, in order to avoid their adverse effects, you should make numerous efforts, like consuming only homegrown and organic foods, to washing the purchased foods before consumption. Yet, these toxic pesticides seem to somehow find a way to enter our lives and endanger our health.
Apparently, a recent research found elevated levels of these dangerous chemicals in the most popular brands of tea bags, such as Twinings, Tetley, and Lipton.
Namely, there was an investigation conducted by the CBC News on the tea bags produced by popular companies worldwide, including:
- Lipton (Yellow Label Black Tea and Pure Green Tea)
- King Cole
- No Name
- Red Rose
- Uncle Lee’s Legends of China (Jasmine Green Tea and Green Tea)
The researchers used an accredited lab to examine the amounts of pesticides on the dry tea leaves, with the same technique employed by the national Food Inspection Agency.
