Ummm ya!!!!!!! About time somebody wrote about this. I never really drank bubble tea as a kid. Still don't and if I do it's definitely without pearls.
why do i doubt this?
been posted before, never stopped drinking bbt. everything these days cause cancer
can't remember the last time I had bubble tea... Probably a year ago?
also....50 cal PER pearl. stopped eating pearls after I found out about that. thank god
This is going to sound bad, but around 3 years ago, I drank bubble tea (always with pearls) at least 4 times a week. Since articles like this one have popped up, I drink bubble tea maybe 3 times within a month at most (seldom with pearls).
everything in the whole damn world can give you cancer LOL. it's called eating/drinking in moderation, having a bubble tea once in a while won't give you cancer.. really hate it when the news over exaggerate or leave out details to make stories attention grabbing.
Perhaps higher chance of getting cancer? Having a smoke or drinking once in awhile will still affect you. It adds up
what does smoking and drinking have to do with bubble tea? you're comparing something that's radically different. the point is, if you're living on this planet, practically anything can give you cancer, and it's not just the stuff we eat too (makeup/beauty, etc). anyways, it's inconclusive at this point to decide whether pearls have cancer causing agents at this point, because there's only been a couple of studies done and not enough data for me to 100% believe it. another point- skimmed through the comments on the article and somebody said it could just be a matter of quality control, not necessarily the pearls itself that are dangerous.
they're connected in some way. they're related to cancer. I was referring to your "it's called eating/drinking in moderation, having a bubble tea once in a while won't give you cancer". I was using smoking and drinking as an example. bbtea, smoking and drinking may not cause you to develop cancer right away but over time. It builds up. of course smoking and drinking has a higher risk than bbtea. if you think they're radically different then how about comparing it with processed foods, junk foods or pop? they all increase cancer risk. an average size bbtea contains about 300 cals. pearls are made out of starch and a load of sugar. prob 180 cals per serving. therefore, containing a little may cause you to develop cancer.
I do agree with you on the "everything in the whole damn world can give you cancer". nail polish, chemicals, laundry detergent, hairspray, tanning, pollution, and many more have a greater risk of cancer. yeah, the news over exaggerate or leave out facts at times but they're just trying to help. They want us to be aware of them. The more we can learn about what causes cancer, the more likely we can find ways to prevent it. The rate of cancer is increasing. Many of us chose to avoid the studies and risk factors. It's up to you whether you want to take charge by making small changes in your daily life, from eating a healthy diet and avoiding health hazards.
Anyways....back to the topic.
because you and i still want to drink it despite the news.
haha i rarely drink it, but i do enjoy it.
