Kombucha Tea Dangerous to Your Health?

I don't drink it regularly, but we enjoy kombucha every now and then, particularly like the kind with the chia seeds. I initially tried it as suggested by Saved1986. Here's an article addressing new false claims that is is dangerous to your health.

First of all, kombucha tea has been around for thousands of years, and has long been used by traditional cultures to improve digestion, boost immunity, eliminate kidney stones, reduce high blood pressure, and create sustained and lasting energy. Though there is still much debate over precisely where it originated, this unique, fermented tea -- kombucha tea is a simple combination of tea, sugar, water, and starter culture -- has no doubt been used safely and effectively by Asian, European, and now North American cultures alike for many centuries without issue.

It is only since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and its cohort of likeminded allies in Western medicine became aware of kombucha's existence and popularity that it somehow became an untested and potentially dangerous concoction that the public should avoid. Though nobody has ever proven that kombucha is in any way dangerous, the mainstream media has published numerous scare stories over the years questioning kombucha's safety.
