day people around the world drink millions of cups of coffee. It has
become a staple of life. We see a StarBucks on every corner. Is coffee
really this good or is it so addictive? I think it is both really. I
think good coffee almost has a sexy taste to it. It tastes rich and
full bodied. Not many things can compare to it. Maybe chocolate, but
that is another article all together. You love to drink coffee. You
love a good cup of steaming hot Joe on a cold morning. Watching the
steam come off the coffee as it snows outside is a very relaxing
thought. Is coffee good or bad for you? Well, I think it depends on who
what you will find is these scientists are paid by a company that wants
to prove a point. Simply put, they pay the scientists off.
As in all things, you must drink coffee in moderation. A cup or two
each day isn't going to be bad for you. If on the other hand you are
drinking a pot every hour, you know that it will have an effect on you.
I have known people who drink coffee like this. They drink it from the
time they wake up to the time they go to bed. This is common in
alcoholics. Let's talk about some of the bad things about coffee.
Coffee stains your teeth.
We all know what the color of coffee stained teeth are. It is up there
with cigarette smoke stained teeth. You can buy things to whiten your
teeth. I would suggest though that instead of trying to whiten your
teeth, you cut back a little on the brew.
Have you ever had a whiff of the breath of someone who is a heavy
coffee drinker? It smells horrible. I would rather smell shit with
flies buzzing around it.
It raises stress levels.
Too much coffee can raise anxiety levels. When this happens, you can
become stressed out. This shouldn't be news to you. Have you ever seen
how much a person shakes after they drink too much coffee?
It can raise the risk of a heart attack.
While science is still somewhat out on this, it shouldn't be much of a
surprise. If it elevates the heart and blood pressure, too much of it
can't be a good thing.
Yes, it can effect the little guys swimming in your semen. It can
actually lower your sperm count. I know that may sound too weird to be
true, but it is.
People who drink too much coffee may have some stomach problems. The
caffeine irritates the lining of the stomach.
Here are some of the benefits of coffee:
- It prevents prostate cancer.
- This is too weird, but it is true. Coffee contains boron, which is a chemical that helps curb prostate cancer.
- It is a good social drink.
You don't drink alcohol? Well, people go to the coffee house
to chat all the time. A cup of coffee could be a good reason to go out
and meet new people. A cup once and while can't hurt. You never know,
you might meet a good friend over that cup of Joe.
It helps wash down a meal. In many cultures it is impolite to either
start a meal or finish one without having a cup of coffee. No one is
certain that coffee actually helps the digestion process, but it sure
tastes good after a meal.
As with all things in life, you need to do things in moderation. If you
feel that you are over doing it, you need to cut back on the coffee. I
know that coffee might taste good, but in the long run you are doing
yourself more harm than good. Just keep in mind that one or two cups
per day isn't going to hurt you.
