The EPA announced in February 2012 that it would continue to allow these teas containing cancer-causing endosulfan to be imported into the US. The EPA stipulated that the toxic teas can be imported up until July 31, 2016.

Wake up tea drinkers! That oolong tea or tall glass of iced tea you’re about to sip might give you cancer.

Before you sip that morning tea, check to see where it was grown and harvested. Over 22 percent of the tea consumed in the US comes from China. (1)

If it came from China, then according to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and the World Trade Organization (WTO), you may want to put that teacup back onto the saucer.

You need to check country of origin!!!

So people in their 60's to 90's who have been drinking tea from China all their lives and haven't got cancer from it, should really worry about it now and quit?

The one thing that was not in the article was when they starting using it.
Not just on tea but on the other foods mentioned in the article...including coffee.
Between additives and sprays, it may not mean much to us at our age, but public outrage may help those much younger and those yet unborn.

Hmmm... I can't drink tea. I can't drink milk. I can't eat processed foods. I can't consume canola oil. Screw it: deep-fried hot dogs with a milkshake, here I come.

CAUTION!!!!!

Surfing the internet MAY cause cancer.

Paranoia strikes deep.
Into your life it can creep.
It starts when you're always afraid.
Step out'ta line, the man come and take you away. Beer
