How much do you really know about that cup of Joe many people seem addicted to? As we focus on healthy habits for 2018 how committed are you to implementing suggestions to help you enjoy even better health? A great step to improving your health is to consume more water on a consistent basis. Many people feel that coffee is a healthy beverage and can even enhance their emotional, mental and physical well being. Are you ready to learn… is coffee healthy or health hazard? Remember a small shift in your decisions and directions can have a major influence in your positive progress when compounded over time.
7 Coffee Health Hazards
- Coffee is well known as a source of caffeine. Unfortunately many people are stressed and wired on too much caffeine which is a powerful stimulant that can over activate the adrenal glands and nervous system.
- Coffee farming is well documented for being a mono crop that harms natural flora and fauna diversity .
- Coffee farming uses a lot of chemical fungicides, insecticides and pesticides.
- Coffee is one of the most commonly consumed beverages that is not a Fair Trade product and takes advantage of poor farmers and workers in many under developed countries.
- Coffee growing often results in the destruction of mountain rainforests and wildlife regions.
- Coffee making produces a significant amount of waste. Most coffee cups, filter, lids, stirs and straws for the “to go market” are not recycled or recyclable. Coffee K cups generate a lot of plastic waste that ends up in lands fills and trash dumps.
- Coffee is often loaded with a wide assortment of artificial additives, flavorings and sweeteners that are healthy hazards.
These 7 Coffee health Hazards show coffee does not support your happiness and health.
Benefits of Coffee?
I have come across numerous studies by reliable sources I follow and trust that indicate some coffee may actually be good for you when consumed and prepared properly. Coffee has been found to offer a potentially healthy range of antioxidants, enzymes, minerals and phytonutrients that support long term health and well being. Consuming some “Bulletproof Coffee” has been found to be helpful for some people. This is based on a person consuming Fair Trade Organic Coffee that is naturally grown with shade tree protection and avoiding the typical additives, flavorings and sugar. Ideally this coffee is:
- Organic (no chemicals used on beans or trees)
- Fresh roasted and then stored frozen to keep from it going rancid
- No chemical additives or flavor enhancers.
- No sugar added.
- Adding organic butter or coconut oil (healthy fats) which help avoid unhealthy additions and sugar.
- Drink enough other water during day to avoid dehydration.
As mentioned in many previous blog post be sure to remember to avoid and minimize exposure to health hazards commonly consumed with teas such as: Additives, Artificial flavorings, Artificial sweeteners, Chemicals, Genetically Engineered (GE) & Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) Frakenfoods, Glyphosate, Heavy Metals, Microwaves, Plastics, Preservatives, Radiation, Synthetic compounds, Toxic Vegetable oils (canola, corn, soy) and refined White sugar which all damage our happiness and health.
