Coffee-The Last of the Legal Drugs

Most people throughout our modern countries would find it hard to imagine starting the day without their coffee. And nowadays, coffee comes in all kinds of forms and flavors and cost a pretty penny besides—not just in dollars, but also in health.

Most Americans love coffee. Coffee is their morning buddy and comforting friend at any time of day. Just the smell of it is enough for many to get lured into another cup. Many people would choose to give up many things before they would ever consider sacrificing their lifetime friend. They even convince themselves that coffee must be good for them.

According to Dr. John McDougall, M.D., 80% of the world drinks caffeinated beverages, and many of those drinks come in the form of coffee. Judging by the stock reports and the explosion of coffee stands throughout the United States and many parts of the world, coffee is more popular now than ever before.

For all of the coffee that people drink every day, how many of those people consider how it affects their bodies and, consequently, their health?

No matter how many studies we see in the media that tout the benefits of coffee, one only has to observe his own body to know that coffee can’t be good for you.

Are you one of those coffee lovers? Observe what happens to your body the next time you drink coffee.

It picks you up. It makes your heart beat faster, and it makes you pee more often. Coffee overworks your heart, kidneys, adrenals glands, and other glands and organs in your body. That can’t be good for you.

Drink in these well-known facts about coffee.

Coffee is addictive.

Coffee is a stimulant.

Coffee makes your bladder work harder.

Coffee causes indigestion.

Coffee causes heart burn.

Coffee causes headaches.

Coffee causes headaches when it is first eliminated from your diet.

Coffee causes nervousness.

Coffee causes anxiety.

Coffee causes fatigue. It may seem to give you more energy when you drink it, but in the end, it exhausts the adrenal glands and wears you out.

Coffee can cause even bigger problems than making you pee more and causing indigestion and headaches.

Coffee can elevate blood pressure, elevate cholesterol, and elevate triglycerides, the fat swimming around in your blood.

Coffee is linked to atherosclerosis or the building up of fat and cholesterol plaque in the arteries and veins. If it is linked to the clogging up of the blood vessels in the body, it follows suit that heart attacks and strokes are correlated with coffee also.

Coffee, along with animal protein, sugar, salt, pop, alcohol, cigarettes, and lack of long-bone exercise, leaches calcium from the bones, ultimately causing the bone dissolving condition of osteoporosis.

Coffee is also associated with rheumatoid arthritis and some cancers.

Not only is coffee overtly detrimental to your body and your health, if you fill up on coffee, a common tradition in the mornings, then often you don’t have the appetite to eat foods loaded with good nutrition, like fresh, whole fruits—great food for the mornings.

One way or the other, there is always a price to pay, whether it be in dollars or in health, for our love affair with the last of the legal drugs—coffee.
