This is a topic with lots of inconclusive results and many opinions about which is better for you health-wise. The cancer agencies are not giving a strong ‘go-ahead’ nor are they saying ‘don’t drink it’. So what is a person to think?
Research, personal experience, and personal preference – tapping into your own body’s wisdom. If you’re like me, you know pretty soon when something you eat or drink does not agree with you. Or if you can handle small quantities some of the time versus larger quantities on a regular basis. It’s about balance.
I’ve found that when it comes to coffee and tea, going the organic route works best. With coffee, I can handle my morning blast without jitters and palpitations if it’s organic. After my morning coffee, I move to tea or hot water.
With tea, if I choose organic teas, my body can handle them better. Still with herbal teas, some create an acid stomach. You need to listen to your body to know what works for you.
They do say that green teas, all the different varieties, are beneficial and may be listed as a food that fights cancer. Do your due diligence – research and listen to your body.
