Are you a Yerba Mate Drinker? It May Cause Cancer!
I was researching Yerba Mate tea this morning because I'm looking for a good alternative to coffee.

What I found on Yerba Mate is alarming! It has been linked to head, neck, lung and other cancers.

Be careful!

And if anyone can recommend a good coffee alternative I would be grateful. I've always only had one cup a day when I wake up, but I'm having trouble feeling engergized without it.

aawww, shucks. That's a bummer, there's a few occasions I like yerba mate. It has a relaxing but peppy feeling.

Have you tried "coffee tea"?

It's sad to say it's quite hard to find right now :(

The search results always lead to either coffee or tea. Let me know if you're able to find a link to purchase "coffee tea" online.

antibs

They were testing SMOKED yerba mate, processed the traditional way, which probably tastes better. You can easily buy UNSMOKED tea (I did yesterday).

Anything you smoke or burn is going to have an increase in carcinogens. It's the same thing with grilled hamburgers or barbecued ribs or smoked fish.

Medical studies like this one have been wrong about everything for decades so don't worry and drink your yerba mate smoked or unsmoked.

I didn't realize there was smoked and Un-smoked. I have both. I hate the taste of the smoked...... no wonder.\


That's crazy about the links that say it's good for colon cancer (I get those periodicals btw). Today's World is so confusing. One article will say something or other is good for you and then you will find another article that says it causes cancer.

Thanks for your info though! I'm reading it now.

if you look on www.sciencedaily.com, new research indicates, one of the compounds found in yerba mate tea (caffeoylquinic acid) induces apoptosis (death) in colon cancer cells, they are now researching if it also would be applicable to other cancers..
