Coffee!

I’ve been around a pretty long time (over 70) and drank coffee on and off during that time.  I was confused by what info was being presented to me, (coffee is bad for your health – coffee is good for your health) so my attitude has shifted back and forth.

A few years ago I decided to buy organic green coffee beans and roasted them my self, and I drank one 16oz. travel coffee mug each morning.  This worked well, I didn’t experience any negative effects (trouble sleeping, anxiety or any of the other known things from caffeine).

Now, over the past few years, I have learned that there are many positive health effects of drinking the stuff!  The reported negative effects are more due to overconsumption, and/or the low quality of the beans used.  My family is almost entirely chooses organic food which helps TREMENDOUSLY! 

Consuming this beverage has positive health benefits such as lowering many issues with the liver such as cancer, cirrhosis etc.  Coffee intake was associated with reduced risk of oral, pharynx, liver, colon, prostate, endometrial cancer and melanoma, but increased lung cancer risk.

So, in light of this info, drink coffee but do not over consume, and make sure it’s organic!

To Your Health!
