Is tea injirious to health? I think yes.My whole family drinks tea twice and i am fed up of saying them how injirious the tea is. They are much addicted to tea now. So i thought to say about tea to mylotter friends. Tea doesnot provide any nutrition to body besides it has many disadvantages. It weakens the nerves and does not provide any strength to the body. Many of my friends drink tea during exams to keep them awake but i think it makes us more sleepy after drinking tea. Are you too addicted to tea then now before having tea think once about its disadvantages too and plese suggest me some healthy drinks which we can have instead of tea so that i can tell my family too.

Tea is injurious to health but at the same time...tea has some benefits also. It has anti oxidants that keep your skin glowing. I am addicted to Tea but i dont think its diffult to stop the habit as well.

Hi Varshathakur, I don't really know who is telling you all this. I have always heard that tea is good for you. Some of the herbal teas have a lot of health benefits from what I hear. People have been drinking tea for zillions of years. I don't think it is harmful at all. Do you have a link to show us why it is bad for you?

I mostly drink coffe, except when I wasnt something really lealthy for some reason. Now that I have a bad cold I have been drinking tea. In the morning I drank green tea but in the evening I had 3 mugs of Earl Grey. It helps my nose.

Everythink in this life when get overdose became bad for the health,the salt,the sugar everythink except the water.The tea is beter then a coffe so if they drink tea only twice i don't think it could be so bad for their health.Ofc if they don't have some health injury that forbid drinking tea.In other i case is not that bad man.

Tea is not injurious to health.Whatever we take more that is not good for us.Everything should be equally consumes and also less quantity.Tea is good for heart attacks ..i have studied in one newspaper(article).Daily 2 cups of tea is normal only and not more.So dont worry my friend Tea is not harmful whereas coffe is harmful if you take more than 2 cups. tks for the article :)

Tea is injurious to our health,I don't think so,where did you get that information from,though tea doesn't provide enough nutrition but it has a lot of minirals and anoxidants which will do a lot of good to our health,I think drinking some little tea is a good habit,tea is much more healthier than coffee because coffee contains a lot coffeein in it which doesn't do good enough to our body with large amounts.

Probably the only drink that's healthier than tea is water. Tea has antioxidants and minerals in it and has been shown to slow the progress and lower the chances of cancer, as well as boost overall immune health. It doesn't have as much caffeine as coffee, but it does have some, so I assume that's why you don't think it's good for you. Anything can be abused, even caffeine. If your friends drink tea to stay awake and they couldn't any more, they would probably find something else and that could be worse than drinking tea.

I don't understand how I keep hearing people on mylot say that tea is not good for you. I have never heard this before. I have heard that tea is better then coffee and tea has alot of antioxidants that are very good for you. I drink tea all the time from Ice tea with no sugar or hot tea with lemon. I also drink alot of green tea both iced and hot. I'm not exactly sure where people are getting their information from but tea is good for you.

its not too injurious to health it helps us to stay awake and during morning it can give a boost and get us away from the sleepiness that we have in the morning drinking twice a day doesnt affect too much but large amounts of tea can have sideeffects like you said addiction to tea so what i want to say is having some thing in small amounts is good for health and large amounts injurious
