In Response To: Re: Yerba Mate (Birdie)
I'd be interested in seeing Birdie's information on Yerba Mate causing bladder cancer and being dangerous for people with liver problems. I did a medline search on mate and ilex paraguariensis (it's botanical name), and found that there is indeed a 1.6 fold increased risk for heavy smokers who drink mate developing lung cancer, and an increased risk for espophageal cancer amongst heavy drinkers of hot (not warm or cold) mate.
