People talk about how drinking a ton of coffee is bad for you all the time. No one wants acidic issues and the jitters. But Quartz reported that studies show drinking lots of coffee can actually lower your risk of health issues—like type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Not everyone drinks coffee properly. We are all affected by java differently. But if you are consuming coffee in the morning without any food in your system it might cause digestive or gastrointestinal issues. According to the Good Men Project, studies also show a link between java and anxiety or depression. And let's be honest—no one wants a strong coffee smell during urination. A little TMI, but you all get the point.
Bloomberg reported that coffee isn't bad for you in early 2015:
Three to five daily cups of coffee aren’t associated with long-term health risks, the panel said in a report Thursday, and correlate with reduced risk for heart disease and type 2 diabetes. The panel helps the U.S. government formulate dietary suggestions, guidelines that affect millions of American diets.
Still, the Good Men Project reported that coffee can put people at risk of health-related issues—regardless of health benefits. Any bad can outweigh the good, right?
There’s hydrochloric acid in our stomachs, which we need to digest our food. But coffee kicks hydrochloric acid production into overdrive, especially when there’s no food in the stomach to cushion the blow. If that happens often enough, the body may gradually lose interest in producing hydrochloric acid on its own. As a result, digestion slows down.
