A young girl from England was suffering from headaches, nausea and abdominal pain for a long period. She was diagnosed with urinary tract infection.
She started an antibiotic therapy, but it doesn’t make her feel any better. Her symptoms worsened after 2 doses when she underwent another examination. This time she was diagnosed with jaundice.
The doctors started investigating to find what led to her condition. They found that the girl had been drinking a Chinese green tea for weight loss, which was bought from the Internet.
They brought the tea in the laboratory for further examination. The analysis found ingredient called “Camellia sinensis” – a herb which causes hepatitis in girls.
Many people are not aware that weight loss tea may contain harmful substances, such as pesticides, which are believed to trigger weight loss.
You should be careful how much green tea you consume daily, because an excessive intake can do more harm than good.
