  1. Using and keeping a cellphone in your pocket is bad, car fumes is bad, microwaves are bad, waterbottles are bad, can foods are bad…and now tea bags? What else will they come up with next? Easier for a Government to control people when they are at a constant state of fear…world war 2 veterans lived with all of this and they lived to be 95…walk outside your house and u can get hit by a car.. just stop it

  2. Nothing is really safe this days…doctors and scientists make human beings to get sick so they can invent new medicines to sell..its a marketing

  3. The Aliens want our cellular structure to absorb plastics. Infinitely easier to travel in space, no need for water, and we'll keep

  4. How much tea do you want with your plastic? Oops! I think humans are 99% plastic and 1% bull crap. We are absolutely determined to cause our own mass extinction through stupidity greed and ignorance!. Enjoy that tea?

  5. Plot twist: Micro plastic is everywhere. As well as inside YOU right now. Even if you drink tea or not. How did it get there? Humans. Only humans.

  6. Did they not check the metal from the grinding, insect parts as in cereal and other foods, residue is all over, like cross-contamination all depends how greedy a place is

  7. 2:23 "10 billion cups of tea that Canadians drink everyday…" That would mean every single Canadian would have to drink about 270 cups of tea a day. Don't think that is an accurate statistic.
