More than a dozen herbal teas were compared for their antioxidant activity.
And finally, what about yerba mate, a latin American herbal tea that’s been linked to cancer. Should we continue to avoid it? Yes, an evaluation of the cyto- and genotoxic activity of yerba mate in human white blood cells, found it caused a significant increase in the rate of cell death. Not what you want from your herbal tea.
