What is great about rooibos is its flavor, which closely resembles black tea with a hint of citric, rosy overtones. It is also rich in antioxidants is caffeine-free and low in tannins.
To extract 50% more antioxidants prepare rooibus by steeping for 30 minutes rather than the usual 5 minutes. Bring 1 cup water and 1 teaspoon rooibos to just under boiling. Reduce immediately. Cover and allow to stand on low, just under boiling, for 30 minutes.
Tullahoma Base Sued For $2.5 Billion Over Contamination:
Chattanooga, TN, October 4, 2000 (Associated Press) - A $2.5 billion lawsuit has been filed against Arnold Air Force Base that accuses government workers of knowingly contaminating the regions groundwater with toxic chemicals.
The lawsuit filed in Chattanooga federal court says officials at the Tullahoma base routinely dumped the carcinogen trichloro- ethylene, or TCE*, into an onsite water reservoir. Tome Nebel, an attorney who filed the lawsuit on behalf of 12 Franklin and Coffee County residents, said at least 10,000 pounds of TCE was disposed of in the base's lake in 1996. He said that over time the chemical has leaked into the aquifer, showing up in tests of residents' wells.
The Environmental Protection Agency has identified TCE, which is used as an industrial solvent, as a probable cancer- causing agent.
Groundwater contamination plagued the complex in the 1950s and 1960s, according to Capt. Tim White, an Arnold spokesman. However, he said there were few if any waste disposal restrictions 40 years ago. He said groundwater contamination during that era was common throughout the country at military and industrial plants.
