Is drinking hot coffee poison to the human body ? Part 2 of 2

A list of cons for hot coffee drinking as reported in 5 detrimental facts to your health ?


Fact 1- Did you know that the coffee industry uses EPA Environmental protection agency banned chemicals on the worlds supply of coffee production crops in many cases out side of the continental US? Yes Americans are drinking banned chemicals in their coffee.


Because the coffee is one of the most pesticide and herbicide ridden cash crops on planet Earth it is in your best health interest to buy Organic Coffee only with the higher price sticker . After all it is your body and your health is it not ? And you have a given right to know what our Food Supply Industry is doing to the foods that you put into your body ! Yes ?

“Even for some individuals like myself hot coffee causes my heart to palpate abnormally due from the high caffeine that acts like a drug in the human body . “



So what does the coffee industry have to say about this ? Nothing ! The coffee industry does not want you to know their dirty little commercial secret what so ever. This of course would have a potentiality of a devastating commercial loss to the influential coffee industry if the word got out to the consumers . Confidence would most likely erode.

The Good Earth Chef has written articles in the past about this problem that the general population is totally clueless about . If you must drink coffee to be safe then you must drink it in 2 ways with no exceptions to this rule .And the coffee for goodness sakes must be labeled organic. Most are not.

Fact 2- Hot Coffee in the heating process has created a carcinogenic compound called Acrylamide that even the FDA has a website admitting to this and that hot coffee and grain products causes cancer in humans.Acrylamide is a chemical that can form in some foods during high-temperature cooking processes, such as frying, roasting, and baking. Acrylamide in food forms from sugars and an amino acid that are naturally present in food; it does not come from food packaging or the environment.


Other sources of Acrylamide are found for use in products such as plastics, grouts, water treatment products, and cosmetics. Acrylamide is also found in cigarette smoke.

French fries and potato chips), coffee, and foods made from grains (such as breakfast cereal, cookies, and toast). These foods are often part of a regular diet. But if you want to lower acrylamide intake, reducing your intake of these foods is one way to do so.


Acrylamide forms in coffee when coffee beans are roasted, not when coffee is brewed at home or in a restaurant. So far, scientists have not found good ways to reduce acrylamide formation in coffee.


Although studies in rodent models suggest that acrylamide is a potential carcinogen, additional epidemiological studies are needed to help determine any effects of dietary acrylamide intake on human cancer risk.


Baked dairy chocolate has acrylamide and raw dark cacao does not .Raw foods do not have this chemical compound and support your production of the master mother of all antioxidants in your body called Glutathione that protects you from the acrylamide exposure of over cooked foods .


And here is the FDA website of resources to go to for seeing for your self at this link



The big question of Holistic Chef Barry as a consumer advocate is that the FDA knows that hot coffee may cause Cancer in Humans right ? So why is the FDA Food and Drug Administration still allowing humans to continue to drink this potentially cancer causing beverage in the first place with out warnings on the label like they are now using on cigarette packages?


And why does the FDA not label this warning on all the coffee industry product lines? We know the answer to this one of course . It is about the money is it not friends ?The process food industry is not in the business for working for your good health .



Fact 3- Is your Addiction ?

Chronic Coffee consumption is notoriously addictive to many individuals with weak constitutions to this substance and can not live with out the fix. Sounds like a drug right ?


In fact like sugar that forces the pancreas to dump out large amounts of insulin to buffer the spike of blood sugar plus alcohol abuse and addictive nicotine from cigarettes coursing through the veins of smokers coffees caffeine consumption does work like an addictive drug in the human body as well.


Many people make many failed attempts to stop drinking coffee .



In fact, drinking coffee has become so addictive that some people can't get through the day without downing several cups in the morning, noon and night. It has even evolved into a social drink, with consumers spending generously on sugar-loaded concoctions from Starbucks and other cafes as the Dr. Joseph Mercola Website describes .


The article further states that drinking coffee daily can compound the toxic substances in your body that increases your risk of insomnia, stroke and heart disease

And as holistic chef barry already concluded in his research for coffee beans are grown outside this country, it’s very likely that they have been exposed to banned EPA pesticides that contribute to several cancers and Parkinson’s disease.


The Mercola article also goes on to say that coffee is also known to disrupt absorption of vitamins and minerals in the human body disrupting a persons ability for achieving homeostasis . The caffeine doesn’t have any nutritional value either, and has been linked to diabetes.

Interesting to not coffee consumption in pregnant women, increases the risk of having a miscarriage or a low birth weight for the baby.


Fact 4- Other health hazards include:

With coffee as the most popular drink in the world it has become a huge business for many and in the end the trade off is the bodies immune system being adversely over taxed and then later related complications predisposing some people to Heart disease

High cholesterol levels

Fluid loss in your body

Rheumatoid Arthritis


Damaged blood vessels


Anxiety symptoms

And Depleted Calcium and Iron levels in women as reported in the Mercola article.

Fact 5-Coffee Consumption disrupts your ability for achieving homeostasis


Coffee is not an energizer as most people believe but instead is more of a stimulant to a persons nervous system that over taxes the adrenal glands increasing the female hormone estrogen in the human body that could lead to the bone demineralization or decline called osteoporosis especially for woman . This is not a good thing folks.


Coffee is dehydration big time when most people are drinking the stuff first thing in the morning . The fact is during the 7 to 8 hours of sleep the human body through respiration has lost up to one quart of bodily water fluid at the time of waking. Actuality every cell in your body is screaming out for more mineralization of electrolytes in your water like lemon lime water or coconut water to replenish your lost fluids and in fact morning coffee consumption does the complete opposite.


Also studies have concluded that drinking hot beverages will predispose some individuals to a higher risk of acquiring esophageal in the throat cancers from the damaged cells hot liquids can cause. It is wise to consume your soaps and beverages warm to the touch and not scolding hot .

And your beverage acrylamide production is a lot less or nil.



So given the facts above there is in my opinion only one safe way of drinking coffee today and this is the way to go.Drink it organic and drink it at warm or room temperature or even chilled.


How to make a nutritious safe coffee beverage alternative today ?



In a blender add the following . Chef Barry on occasion mixes according to his taste some ground organic coffee , with raw dark organic Cacao or chocolate nibs . A teaspoon of ground cinnamon , and ground ginger root powder , (Ginger is a cancer prevention food )with one or two ripe bananas .


Add 2 table spoons of fresh young coconut meat with the water or coconut milk . ( Coconut has good medium chain fatty acid that your liver converts into energy for helping you to lose your weight )


Add your fresh coconut water with the white meats to the level of the ingredients inside the blender.


You can add any choices of a fresh herbal optional leafy green to the amount that you desire ?

Chef Barry likes sweet basil , cilantro , oregano, mint,parsley ,chicory,olive leaf, or the fresh Moringa Leaf that grows wild through out the Garden Villa Phuket Good Earth Health Residence located on the resort island of Phuket Thailand. (All leafy greens provide a good source of the essential mineral magnesium and the fat soluble vitamin K-1 for your good heart health .


After blending to a smooth consistency then simply pour into a glass and stir in some bee pollen and raw unfiltered honey to your taste. Try this and let the Good Earth Chef know what you think ? Bee pollen is natures original supplement .


Also warm loose leaf organic tea leaf tea is a good alternative to the coffee.
