Bubble Tea Tapioca Pearls May Contain Cancer-Causing Chemicals, German Study Claims

Commented Sep 7, 2012 at 13:50:17 in Healthy Living

“I'm not saying German people eat dog food and toys. I'm saying that they didn't experience the scare of tainted products that US had several years ago. Though I'm not sure, so apologies for the unchecked fact. As to the other, China makes many excellent products, but it is also well known that many industries are unregulated, which hurts end customers and even more so the unprotected Chinese workers who must live every day working with unsafe chemicals. How is that racist? But of course none of this has anything to do with bubble tea.”

Bubble Tea Tapioca Pearls May Contain Cancer-Causing Chemicals, German Study Claims

“I read this in a German online paper but because my German stinks I thought I had misunderstood. Because in the small town in Bavaria where I live there are at least 4 of these shops that have popped up over the past 6 months. It's really strange. I wonder if it's because in Germany they haven't had the poisoned dog food from China, poisoned infant toys from China, etc., etc., that we have had in the US that they allowed these tapioca ball things to be massively imported before verifying they were actually edible.”

generasean on Sep 7, 2012 at 11:47:52

“Yeah, because German people eat dog food and infant toys from China. Awesome grammar there buddy. Just like all food, there are impostors and there are legitimate companies who make quality products. Just because it's an undisclosed company in Germany but "originated from Taiwan" doesn't make all boba tea houses bad.

And for all the commenters below, the post is specifically saying the tapioca balls (boba), not the tea itself.

Team Brogan sounds a little racist to me, but that's a different story since Huffington Post decided to delete my comment.”

“These prices are for what most would consider a business class hotel, which has way more amenities than a more frugal tourist would ever need. For expensive cities, you can ALWAYS get better deals and much nicer places by going the vacation rental apartment route if staying 3 nights or more. And if you do have to go to a hotel, do your shopping with a big hotel booking site, but then go directly to the hotel's website to actually book as they usually have special deals going that are better than the special deals of the big site. Finally, (especially for my fellow Americans) don't be afraid to use a ''local'' vs a more familiar chain hotel. Local hotels can be friendly, cheaper and nicer than a chain... just check review sites to make sure other travelers liked them.”

“When I was a starving grad student in my early 20's, a friend got me a free studio in St Tropez for the summer. I thought I was so lucky, but then realized that I was literally going to have to survive on dried soup packets as everything was so expensive. On the bright side, I lost a lot of weight. It is beautiful, though, and technically the view is free. On the other hand, Italy has a price range for nearly everyone, and taking the ferry on Lake Como gives you a view on Clooney's estate, if that's your thing. Don't worry about knowing which one it is before hand, you will know when all the Italian ladies on board start shouting "Ciao, George, bello, bello!". Really.”

“Speaking from experience, a lot of natural blondes have thin or not very visible eyebrows as the color makes them too light to see. And I would say ALL of these women are wearing make up, as in the photo with Kelly she has mascara, lipstick, brow pencil (or dye) and powder. When the press says ''no makeup'' they just mean without the full slap we're used to seeing!”

“Sandusky did not have a "homosexual mindset". He has a sick twisted mindset wrapped within a professional and personal package of a white, entitled, wealthy football hero beyond reproach. Which allowed him both easy access to victims and the support of a community turning a blind eye. Keeping your children sheltered and shamed by the confines of religion just means if it happens to them, they will not come and talk to you (their parent) about it. YOU were fortunate, Sandusky's victims were not. God, if he exists, did nothing to protect these boys and I hope that at least knowing their own personal monster is not hurting anyone else will help them somewhat.”

“I agree - as someone who is gainfully employed but not eligible for medical insurance due to a pre-existing condition, it was always my understanding that the truly impoverished were eligible for Medicare and/or Medicaid. You don't get more impoverished than this poor guy, so it would seem if he is not covered then the system really covers no one. For shame on anyone opposing health care reform in the USA.”

“Sorry, unless you have Prader Willi (which is extremely rare), to get to this size you have to eat, even with a poor metabolism. Her mother has said in the UK papers that she buys her pre-prepared food, junk food (same thing), soda and take outs. That she eats enough sandwiches a day alone to go through two loaves of bread. Kids learn what we teach them and eat what their parents provide them, at least until a certain age. Her mother is clearly responsible for very poor parenting and enabling, I hope the girl can get some good help now.”

“If you were in the tourist areas of London, which are quite expensive to live in, then it is true that you wouldn't see as many overweight people. Just as you wouldn't see them in Manhattan. Just as in the US, the obese in the UK come from the more poor and disadvantaged populations. As a tourist, you're not going to see council flats.”

“With a few exceptions, these are also the FATTEST states and minority groups in the country. What the heck is going on here? If you're poor you're fat...until you get older and then you starve?”

Jeanne in WV on May 4, 2012 at 11:53:56

“Cheap foods are high carbohydrate foods. Potatoes, soda, pasta, cookies, rice, etc are all relatively cheap. Meat and vegetables are more expensive. High carbohydrate foods will cause the body to store glucose as fat, even at the expense of other organs in the body. A person can be obese and malnourished at the same time.

As a person gets older, their income goes down and they have even less access to proper food, so they eat Ramen noodles and tea and toast. They may go hungry, and not get enough calories, but they will remain fat.”

Revee on May 4, 2012 at 11:36:36

“The "fatness" is from WHAT they can afford to eat and not how much they eat. And yes, when they are younger they have some income and mobility to get more to eat than when they are older (and possibly sicker).”

“Poor eating habits do make you fat, if you do not eat regular meals you are more likely to be fat, and fruit and vegatables are much more expensive than noodles and rice, which will also make you fat. An education can cure your ignorance. Fat does not equate with good eating habits, it equates with bad eating habits.”

“The only thing they should do differently is to alert you at the time of purchase on what the policy is. That way if you require special assistance, you know what the score is before you purchase a non-refundable ticket. I travel with a service dog so always deal with the special assistance departments of airlines, and if they are not clear on their policies up front, I do not take the chance of purchasing a ticket. And yes, if you cannot fit into an airplane seat, you are 'special assistance' material, even if you don't like that label. Having been very overweight myself, anyone who is fat is the first to know. It shouldn't come as a big surprise hearing from an airline ticket agent.”
