I have lived this long, and I wasn't worried before, and I am not worried now. As the song said, "I Will Survive!"

From Glaucus Research comes this bit of (almost hidden) information:

"DISCLAIMER:

Yep, right there in very faint lettering at the bottom. (Always start at the bottom of any research)

I like my tea. I know there may be bad things in it, but the same may be said of many other foods.

It was an interesting article, though, and thank you posting this! I may look at this further.

With love,
~Cat

I recently came across a bunch of very old photographs of vacationers, some dating back to the 1800's. I must say, the English LOVE, LOVE their tea. Here they are dressed in the hottest clothing and sitting at the beach on a boardwalk, drinking their tea in cups with saucers. There is one of a walkup stand that serves tea in cup and saucer and they stand around drinking holding the saucer in one hand and their cup in the other. Some showed picnickers sitting on the beach on a blanket, with their cups and saucers. No matter where, they must have their cups and saucers. Another thing were the hats. The woman wore hats to the beach even during the days when they started to wear those "coverall" bathing suits. There they are sitting on a blanket on the beach in their bathing suits with their hats on. And always drinking their tea.

I don't care what is in the tea. When I need some quiet relaxing time, tea does it best. And what kids doesn't feel grownup when Mom lets them have a cup of tea with toast. Milk and sugar of course.

Today, we are just same. We have to have that morning cup of coffee to get our day started.

You are right! Mamma gave me tea when I was very young and I did feel all grown up!

I can't have coffee. It smells wonderful, and DA loves it, but when I drank this for the first time, my stomach became very upset and I was nauseaus.

So, I like tea.

With love,
~Cat

I don't think coffee is as bad as tea for pesticides and other unwanted residue. Most tea is sold in bags, and there can be unwanted residue in the paper which the bags are made of.

The results of The Canada Food Inspection Agency survey show better compliance to pesticide residue standards in retail coffee than in tea.

FoodBabe (the article in the first post) also has something to say about coffee, pesticides and Starbucks.

FoodBabe got Subway Sandwiches to change chemical in their bread.

Subway Removes Shoe Sole Chemical From Its Bread - The Almagest

Now, I wonder what other bread that chemical is in. Should I worry?

Probably many places.
