Plastic in your tea?

Are you drinking plastic? A recent study found that steeping one plastic tea bag released around 11.6 billion microplastics into the cup of tea! Here's a link to the study if you want to read more: https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.est.9b02540


You really don’t want plastic in your body. It interferes with your hormones, which can make it difficult to lose weight and keep it off. Some plastics act like oestrogen in the body (in both men and women). For women this can also make PMS, pre-menstrual migraines and painful heavy periods much worse. It can also exacerbate that feeling of puffiness and holding fluid (water).


What to do? Drink loose leaf tea or if you like using tea bags, ensure you use ones free from bisphenol-A (BPA), phthalates, polypropylene, and epichlorohydrin. Look for tea bags made from organic hemp, cotton, or plant fibers instead.
