Tea Green Organic
All varieties of tea come from the leaves of a single plant, which contains some of the most powerful antioxidants known. The difference between green and black tea is simply one of fermentation. To protect itself, the body makes and uses antioxidants to scavenge and neutralize free radicals believed to contribute to aging and diseases including cancer. Tea contains antioxidant polyphenols called catechins. Green tea contains the highest levels of catechins, followed by oolong and black teas. Other studies have shown catechins halt tumor cells and protect healthy cells from damage. Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled "organic," a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified,
