This article from Listverse shows exactly what I mean. I can't imagine this ever happening to me, at least...I hope not!
An Arkansas man suffered kidney failure as a result of drinking too much iced tea.
The 56-year-old man drank about 16 240-milliliter (8 oz) cups of iced tea every day. In May 2014, the man was admitted to the hospital after complaining of nausea, weakness, and body aches. Doctors discovered that his kidneys were extremely clogged and irritated. They started him on dialysis, which he will probably be on for the rest of his life.
The damage to the man’s kidneys was caused by a chemical called oxalate. This chemical occurs naturally in black tea as well as other foods such as rhubarb and spinach. Too much oxalate can lead to kidney damage. The man from Arkansas was consuming 3–10 times more oxalate than the average American.
According to the Harvard School of Public Health, consuming up to four cups of tea per day is a safe amount. Sixteen cups per day is too many.
Seems like everything I like is turning out to be bad for me. Coffee and eggs seem to be on again and off again, so maybe tea will follow that same line. Who knows?
Coffee in the kitchen again this morning. Made some chocolate fudge if you want some.
