Green Tea Protects Against Dioxin Toxicity

( — According to a scientific study, pigments found in green tea can help the body combat disease. Lutein and Chlorophyll A and B, which are found in green tea leaves, can help the body fight again dioxin toxicity. Dioxins are environmental pollutants that enter the body primarily through the food chain and are most commonly found in the fatty tissue of animals, meaning they enter the human body through our consumption of meat and fish. The World Health Organization warns that dioxins are “highly toxic and can cause reproductive and developmental problems, damage the immune system, interfere with hormones, and cause cancer.”

Dioxins are a by-product of many industrial processes and make their way into the food chain via the manufacture of herbicides and pesticides. In Ireland in 2008, the largest ever food recall was conducted when animals bred for meat were given contaminated food. A similar occurrence took place in Belgium a decade earlier. More recently, it is believed that dangerous dioxins were released into the atmosphere in East Palestine, Ohio, following the train derailment there. This may have occurred when some of the chemicals carried by the train were deliberately burned for safety reasons.

Green tea however has been shown to significantly reduce their impact, as well as offer a host of other health benefits. The tea is derived from a plant called Camellia Sinensis which originates in East Asia and has been used medicinally for centuries. Medical and scientific research suggests that it has a positive impact on the fight against liver disorders, heart disease, digestion problems, and even Alzheimer’s disease. It lowers cholesterol, reduces the risk of stroke, improves skin, and has a positive effect on the brain – making people think more clearly and with a more accurate memory.

Tea is the second most consumed liquid in the world after water. Its consumption can be traced back as far as 2,700 BC. It is becoming more and more popular in the United States. It generated revenue of more than $960 million in 2021.
