Green Tea and Honey - Two Warnings for Pregnant/Baby

There is no doubt about the health benefits of green tea and/or honey. BUT two warnings seem extremely important to me, and I believe they should be included in every article promoting the use of either of the above.

One is that honey contains clostridium botulinum which can be harmful and even fatal to babies under 1 year of age.

Two is that large amounts of green tea can cause neural tube defects in the fetus and so should be used only in moderation by pregnant women.


Totally agreed. For further information about why pregnant mother should avoid drinking green tea, read
