Bleach Free Tea Bags

Other

Tea bags that have been chlorine-bleached contain harmful chemicals such as dioxin and epichlorohydrin. These chemicals are commonly found in processed tea bags and have been proven to increase the risk of disease.

I never know tea bag was chlorine-bleached. You shocked me. After I drink tea i get a bit of a tummy ache I drink Yorkshire tea. After reading what you put up I am going to change to loose tea. Might stop my tummy ache. Thank you for put me wise to it. I've seen people tear the tea bag and take the tea out of the bag.. once again thank you. 🙄🙄

If they put Yorkshire Tea in an unbleached bag and it tasted the same then this sounds like a good thing. If it tasted different then I would have to add some bleach to my tea. As I have been drinking from said tea bags all my life the I am screwed already and I love my tea. Shame we are exposed to such chemicals all the time. I am sure though I have consumed worst in other foods and drinks too.

It is not too late to change what type of tea you drink

zerocenturyzero True. Yet I am just not bothered about the levels. It is nothing compared to that found in meat, dairy and fish. And I am also not currently heading towards vegetarianism. So my tea intake is the last thing I need to worry about, if I am to spend any time worrying about it. Also the worry could lead to stress that could lead to poor choices in diet that could lead to cancer.

Health Risk of Dioxin Exposure

Once dioxins have entered the body, they are absorbed by fat tissue. Their half-life in the body is estimated to be seven to eleven years (4). The study performed on Princeton University, USA, in y. 2003, has shown that there is no safe dose below which dioxin will not cause cancer (5).

After ingestion, dioxins accumulate in fatty tissues and disrupt the hormone system. EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency) scientists warned in 1994 that minute exposures to organochlorines can lead to cancer, loss of reproductive capabilities, endometriosis, developmental and behavioral disorders, learning disabilities, birth defects, and damaged immune systems (4). Fetus may absorb dioxins across the placenta and infant through their mother’s milk (8). However, TCDD does not affect DNA (4).
