Let's make it clear: almost everything on this planet -
from food and beverage to various natural disasters can
harm our health and even worse. But we don't speak about
those calamities as often as about coffee effects
(almost always negative) on our health. We must admit
when those who don't drink it see a person consuming
coffee, they start speaking about the recent researches
proving the beverage is bad and kills people. They think
it's their civil duty to prevent anyone on the planet
and feel proud when someone agrees. But wait a minute:
isn't it annoying? Don't you want in a moment like this
tell this person: then what makes us alive and add us
more years to live?
Coffee as any other drink in general has adherents and
opponents, benefits and favourable influence. The
scientists can argue for a long time and won't find the
right answer, I'm sure. Why did coffee become such a
popular topic for arguing when it comes to the health
There are benefits of coffee as well, don't forget it.
There's no need to invent something fantastic to prove
this, let's just throw a quick glance at history. Coffee
has always been something which served as a relaxing
remedy: it helped different people relax after work,
meditate and simply enjoy this magic aromatic drink at
all times. Not without reason the Arabs have thoroughly
hidden the secret about the coffee planting and brewing
which then made European merchants eager to find this
new born treasure.
Yes, some scientific researchers have proven that
coffee contains kahweol and cafestol that are able to
enlarge the risk of coronary heart disease rising
low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels in blood. It's
considered that coffee drinking may lead to iron
deficiency anaemia in nursing mothers and their babies.
Coffee allergy is also an evident problem as there
always will be people whose organism reacts on some
food, drink and anything else. Again, an allergy may be
caused by too much coffee and thus large caffeine
content in your body, so try to consume a moderate
number of cups per day.
So my advice will always remain one and the same: to be
healthy, always keep to the golden mean – a certain
number of cups per day, properly roasted, ground and
brewed coffee beans of a superior quality. Believe me,
everything's important and if you follow these rules,
your health will not be subjected to danger.
