Caution: Green Tea is High in Fluoride

A new study has been released that has created a stir among holistic wellness gurus and those trying to lose weight. Now, it seems certain varieties of tea can contain more than twice the fluoride content recommended by the FDA for public water. Particularly rich in fluoride is green tea, mostly because this specific variety is exposed to the highest concentrations of fluoride during both cultivation and production. Fluoride is known to be dangerous when ingested in high quantities, which is alarming for those who drink green tea regularly for health or weight loss purposes. Green tea supplements that contain concentrated green tea extract have the potential to be most dangerous, though follow-up studies are needed to confirm this fear. Read more about this new study.
