Most people are aware of the ill affect of drinking coffee because
it contains caffeine. But, overall, is coffee bad for you? Actually, coffee is a narcotic beverage. The
caffeine in the coffee belongs to the same alkaloid group of chemicals as
morphine, cocaine and strychnine. It is no surprise then why people
have such a difficult time, at first, letting go of coffee, and replacing
it with healthier beverages. Caffeine combines with the stomach's
hydrochloric acid and forms a potent toxin, caffeine hydrochloride.
this toxin is absorbed into your portal circulation and hits your liver,
bile is released in an attempt to flush the toxin from your system. This
accounts for the increase in bowel "regularity" of which many
coffee drinkers boast. If you are one of these people, you might ask
yourself, "Is such a toxin-induced flush really very health
promoting? Or Isn't there a healthier way for me to be regular?" The
answer, of course, is "No" to the first, and "Yes" to
the second question, "Is coffee bad for you?
COFFEE CAUSES NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES
"Heavy coffee drinkers create Thiamine (B-1) insufficiency.
Symptoms of B-1 insufficiency range from fatigue, nervousness, general
malaise, general aches and pains to headaches. Regular use of coffee
prevents some of the nutrients in your food from being absorbed
effectively in your small intestines, which leads to further vitamin and
COFFEE COUNTERACTS MEDICATIONS FOR PAIN, OBESITY, HYPERTENSION AND
"The secondary rise in plasma epinephrine due to the low blood
sugar will undo whatever good medications are doing to counteract the
hyperactive dopaminergic system in patients suffering from pain, obesity,
hypertension or depression. A few minutes after drinking coffee, the
stimulation of the dopaminergic system results in cold extremities along
with simultaneous rise in deep (visceral) temperature. A patient with high
fever is harmed by coffee, but helped by tea and lemon juice. The
decaffeinated coffee contains the same acid oil, and thus is no better
than regular coffee.
COFFEE CONTAINS HARMFUL CHEMICALS
"Drinking decaffeinated coffee is no better than drinking regular
coffee because of the large concentration of the chemical
Trichloroethylene. It is used mainly as a de-greasing agent in the metal
industry and as a solvent and dry cleaning agent in the clothing industry.
Trichloroethylene is related to plastic chemical vinyl chloride, which has
been linked to certain types of liver cancer. Columbian coffee planters
have regularly used deadly pesticides on their plants for over 20 years.
Some include Aldrin, Dieldrin, Chlordane and Heptachlor. Some speculate
that coffee beans are the most significant source of these deadly toxins
in U.S. diets. The extreme temperatures in the roasting process of
coffee beans depletes the beans of its natural oils. Though it may enhance
their aroma, high heat actually causes the oils to become rancid.
The chlorogenic acid found in coffee has also been linked to toxic side
COFFEE OVERWORKS THE ADRENALS AND SLOWS SPORTS PERFORMANCE
"Coffee has an acid-based oil which is an irritant to gastric
mucosa. It simulates the secretion of gastric acidity and this results in
secretion of adrenalin. The secretion of adrenalin stimulates insulin
secretion with consequent secondary hypoglycaemia. The end results are
tension, mild rise in blood pressure, 2-3 hours later a craving for
sweets, low energy and mood levels, and over working of the adrenal
glands. All of which negatively affects health, exercise and sports
performance. So there can be little doubt as to the correct answer to
the question "Is coffee bad for you?"
THE "BUZZ" FROM COFFEE
"The "buzz" or stimulation you get from coffee actually
contributes to re-bound fatigue when the stimulating effects wear off.
Repeated stimulation can contribute to the exhaustion of key organs like
the liver, pancreas and adrenal glands. If you still want that
"buzz" you get from coffee and strong teas, try Chinese Jasmine
Green Tea, instead. It has an effective stimulant without many of the
negative health effects.
So now if someone asks you "Is coffee bad for you?" you can give
an informed answer !
So don't just follow the crowd and be a coffee fool. Drink tea and
be healthy and wise!
Footnote: Caffeine is found in varying quantities in the beans, leaves, and fruit of over 60 plants, where it acts as a natural pesticide that paralyzes and kills certain insects feeding on the plants. It is most commonly consumed by humans in infusions extracted from the beans of the coffee plant and the leaves of the tea bush, as well as from various foods and drinks containing products derived from the kola nut or from cacao. Other sources include yerba mate, guarana berries, and the Yaupon Holly.
In humans, caffeine is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant, having the effect of temporarily warding off drowsiness and restoring alertness. Beverages containing caffeine, such as coffee, tea, soft drinks and energy drinks enjoy great popularity; caffeine is the world's most widely consumed psychoactive substance, but unlike most other psychoactive substances, it is legal and unregulated in nearly all jurisdictions. In North America, 90% of adults consume caffeine daily. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration lists caffeine as a "Multiple Purpose Generally Recognized as Safe Food Substance". Recent research, however, suggests that regular caffeine use during pregnancy may increase the risk of
miscarriage. Natural Cures ebooks
