Is Coffee Poison to the Human Body?

Is drinking hot coffee a poison to the human body ? Article part 1 of 2


First lets define what a poison is as described by the on line dictionary Wikipedia

Poisons are substances that cause disturbances to organisms usually by chemical reaction or other activity on the molecular scale, when a sufficient quantity is absorbed by an organism such as the human body.

Poisons are most often applied in industry, agriculture and other uses for other reasons than their toxicity. Pesticides are one application where they are indeed used for their toxicity.

In 2013 unintentional poisonings resulted in 98,000 deaths down from 120,000 deaths in 1990


The 4th leading cause of death in the United States of America is caused from the abuse and use of pharmaceutical drug therapy so you must ask yourself if wikipedia has included this grim statistic in their report findings? The FDA is not testing drugs for efficacy but more for toxicity to the human body so these approved drugs are technically classified as poisons to the human body . Just it may take a long time like years to have organ failure or out right die from overdose does not mean that the drug is less than a poison to the human body .


From the Good Earth Thai Kitchen of Holistic Chef Barry Anderson

“Nutritionally Ignorant is the Giant Processed Food Industry that has caused so much uncountable health damage to the innocent people living on this Good Earth that do not know any better.


Years ago Holistic Chef Barry has stopped reading the Fake Food Labels of the Fake Food Processed Food Industry to protect his own health .


Our Food Supply today is by large pathetically appalling, immoral and unethical today against the people that again do not know any better. Obesity is preventable and should never have been allowed to happen globally as it is today “ Holistic Chef Barry

1-Coffee is Addictive?

2-A Poison ?

3- Causes Cancer in Humans ?

4- And what the Coffee industry does not want you to know about is covered in this article ?


“Wow strong words I know but Holistic Chef Barry is not interested in what side is right or what side is wrong ? The good earth chef is only interested in the truth only?” And other interesting Health Facts .


Depending on who you are talking to the coffee industry advocates have their own industry backed studies to show health benefits and the other party of alternative health advocates see things very differently . So in the end it is you that will be the judge of this very hot topic regarding the worlds favorite beverage ?


Read Chef Barry's Fact Article below to know the real story behind your favorite Joe?


Chef Barry will present the Pros first for the coffee industry and for consumer awareness and for the cons that will follow. And again in the end it is you to be the judge ? Thank You Holistic Chef Barry Anderson


The Pros of Hot Coffee Drinking ?

First chef Barry must point out that after reading through many of the resource links he is perplexed at reading all the old school out dated data for example .


Recent studies show that it is indeed free form calcium depositing inside the arteries that is the real culprit for Heart Disease and Atherosclerosis and not the cholesterol theory that the cholesterol lowering drug industry wants you and every one else to believe.

Refined sugar also contributes to heart disease and many cancers as well that will be covered in a future article by the good earth chef.


Secondly the articles on many so called authority sites go on to say that cholesterol and saturated fats cause heart disease . Excuse me but this again very much out dated information and is biased and totally wrong . The simple fact is cholesterol is so essential to our health that our liver makes 80 percent of it inside of our body and cannot make the other 20 percent so that missing part must come from our foods.


Coconut is a saturated medium chain fatty acid that in studies clearly shows support to the brain , con-genitive heart health ,energy production and weight loss.

The human body needs the dietary fats to support the absorption of fat soluble vitamins A-D – E and K.


Now a list of pros of hot coffee drinking as reported in 5 health benefits to you ?


1- Coffee protects against breast cancer in humans ?

Basically after reading this report the article concludes in the following manner .


All of the conflicting evidence out there means "I wouldn't necessarily tell my patients after reading an article like this to drink more than five cups of coffee a day to lower your risk of a particular type of breast cancer," Shayne told MyHealthNewsDaily. "It's just that if you happen to enjoy coffee consumption, you may possibly have an added benefit of protection against one subtype of breast cancer." To recap some studies are showing that coffee is causing cancers and some preventing cancer all in the same breath.You can decide what is right for you ?


2. Coffee wards off stroke in humans ?

In the journal Circulation, showed that those who drank two or three cups of caffeinated coffee a day had a 19 percent lower risk of stroke than those who drank less than one cup a month. And in the same article it goes on to saying that men who had two or more cups of tea a day had a 21 percent decreased risk of stroke , the same study is saying.You decide what is right for you ?


3. Coffee reduces risk of diabetes in humans ?

In the same report it goes on to say the following comment .

Drinking four cups of coffee every day can decrease a woman's risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by more than half, according to a new study.


And the researchers say they've uncovered the reason why the new findings and other research have suggested a link between java and diabetes. They found that coffee raises the amount of sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) in the blood, and higher levels of SHBG are known to lower the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

It's likely something in the coffee besides the caffeine — or something about coffee drinkers that confers these protective effects, said James D. Lane, an associate research professor at Duke University Medical Center, who was not involved with the study.


Although, "it's impressive to find these new things," Lane told MyHealthNewsDaily, more research is needed to confirm the link.

The study is published in this month's issue of the journal Diabetes.


The more coffee you drink, the lower your diabetes risk?

In the new study, researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles, compared the medical histories and coffee-drinking habits of 359 women who had diabetes with those of 359 healthy women over 10 years. They used information from the Women's Health Study, run by the National Institutes of Health.


Women who drank four cups of caffeinated coffee a day had higher levels of SHBG and were 56 percent less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than women who don't drink coffee, the researchers found.


And the more coffee the women drank, the more their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes dropped, the study said.

Furthermore, when the researchers took into account the women's SHBG levels, they found that it was coffee's effect on SHBG levels that was making the difference in diabetes risk. SHBG regulates the levels of sex hormones in the blood.

Previous work had suggested a link between SHBG and diabetes.


A 2009 study in the New England Journal of Medicine, done by one of the researchers of the new study, showed that higher levels of SHBG in the blood were associated with a lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Past evidence of protection

A causal link between SHBG, diabetes and coffee — which contains many compounds — is not clear, Lane said. For example, he pointed to a 2004 study in journal Diabetes Care, which showed that caffeine is harmful to people with Type 2 diabetes, because it hinders the breakdown of glucose.


And to add interest to this article you must ask your self this question ? What is the ingredient added to most coffee beverages today? Answer is refined sugar . And what does refined sugar to to a diabetic?

Spikes their blood sugar exactly. You can decide what is right for you ?


4-Coffee improves brain function in humans ?


As the report states the following Coffee and tea do more than keep you awake in the mornings studies have shown they may prevent Alzheimer's disease and improve cognitive function.


A 2010 study in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease found that when researchers gave caffeinated coffee to mice genetically engineered to develop Alzheimer's disease, the disease either slowed in progression or never developed. Based on the finding, coffee eventually could serve as a therapeutic treatment for people with Alzheimer's disease, the researchers said.


Tea showed protective effects on the brain, too. Tea drinkers did better on tests on memory and information processing than non-tea drinkers did, according to a 2010 study of 716 Chinese adults 55 and older in the Journal of Nutrition, Health and Aging.


The key point to all of this is the following “ researchers giving caffeinated coffee to mice genetically engineered to develop Alzheimer's disease”The problem with this study is that animals are entirely different in biological make up than humans are and we both live different life styles including the way we age. You can decide what is right for you ?


Other foods that support the brain are as follows A through F

A- Spinach and carrots .

B-Herbal organic loose leaf teas.

C-Small wild fish of pray for the omega 3 fatty acids .

D-Organic berries as the conventional ones are historically treated with agricultural chemicals and not recommended. All edible plants are systemic in nature meaning that their root systems absorb the chemical up through out their interior cellulose fibers .

E-Walnuts . Soak them to remove the enzyme inhibitors for much better digestion.

F- Coconut oil and all coconut food products.



5-Coffee Reduces prostate cancer risk in humans?

Regular coffee intake (either caffeinated or decaffeinated) is associated with a decreased risk of deadly prostate cancer, according to a study published today (May 17) in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.


Ok when Holistic Chef Barry clicked the associate link not to his surprise it was about obesity that was the real prime culprit that predisposed men to higher rates of prostate cancer . You have to look at who is conducting the study ?And what if anything what is there to be gained financially from such a study? The simple fact remains to day that Cancer is in all of us . Yes this is true . In fact with in a persons life time diagnosed cancers can happen to an individual as much as on 11 different occasions inside the human body according to studies looking at groups and communities of people that tend to live more or less with out incidence of cancer and others that seem to have higher incidences of cancers.


The cancers in most cases some how go into remission on there own when a good healthy lifestyle change is made to support the persons immune system . This kind of information you will never know from mainstream medicine or the American Cancer Society ever !

List of resources

The spontaneous healing of cancer is a phenomenon that has been observed for hundreds and thousands of years and after having been the subject of many controversies, it is now accepted as an indisputable fact. Read on at this link
