These days there are many people who addicted to coffee . Some people even drink coffee instead of their meal . I agree that coffee is good and it smells nice too . Beside this , coffee also has some benefit for us , I heard that drinking coffee without sugar can helps you to lost weight and for those who working over night a cup of coffee can helps you to stay awake and focus well . However , it has good sides , coffee also has downsides that effect our health badly if we didn’t be careful. Here are 10 negative effect of coffee:
1. Effect growing up progress
Coffee is just like drug . The caffeine in coffee will make you addicted to it. Kids are not allowed to drink much coffee because it will make them addicted , the caffeine will effect their health and especially they will not grow up properly .
2. Reduce fertility in women
In some countries coffee is forbidden for pregnant women . A study from The University of Nevada School of Medicine showed that caffeine can reduce a woman’s chances of becoming pregnant by about 27%.
Have you ever experience hangover after you drank coffee ? I experienced this . Drinking coffee will sometime give you a bad headaches, especially those who have started drinking it for the first time . The overuse of caffeine can cause headaches and lead to migraines.
As I have mentioned drinking coffee might be useful for those who have night shift work because the caffeine will helps you to stay awake and won’t fall asleep during work .However, for those who don’t have to stay late at night , don’t drink coffee at night time or maybe before going to bed cause it will cause insomnia and you won’t fall asleep or you might be ended up staring at the ceiling for a whole night while everyone is enjoying their peaceful sleep. Be careful and manage the time of drinking it .
5. Increace heart beat
Some people who have weak body system or not really healthy coffee might not a really good drink for you . A recent study showed that immediately after energy drink consumption the heart produced more forceful contractions. It is unclear if this has any long-term health implications except for those with known health conditions.
6. Accelerates Bone loss
Drinking much coffee causes the urinary excretion of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and trace minerals, which can lead to osteoporosis. Some women are more likely to be affected by caffeine than others due to genetic factors; however, it seems prudent to recommend that all older women have adequate dietary calcium, and limit caffeine intake to no more than 300 milligrams per day.
7. Increases Stress Levels
Drinking too much coffee can make your body act like if it is under constant stress . If you have to much work , or tired drinking much coffee might add more stress pressures and it can increases blood pressures and might lead to long term heart disease .
Because caffeine is a diuretic, or a substance increasing urine production, drinkers of regular coffee are at risk of dehydration, the University of Arizona Campus Health website says. Engaging in vigorous exercise or living in an arid climate may make you especially sensitive to the dehydrating effects of coffee. Coffee consumers should make an effort to drink water or other caffeine-free beverages to stay fully hydrated, especially during and after exercise.
9. Increases blood sugar levels
For those with type 2 diabetes drinking coffee might be harder and bad for them cause caffeine can increases blood sugar levels and it is hard for them to manage their insulin, according to a number of studies; it also can slightly raise blood pressure. If you have difficulty controlling either your blood pressure or diabetes, switching to decaf may help, says Rob van Dam with Harvard’s School of Public Health.
10. Gastrointestinal Problems
Many people experience a burning sensation in their stomach after drinking coffee because coffee increases the secretion of hydrochloric acid, which leads to an increased risk for ulcers. Coffee, including decaf, reduces pressure on the valve between the esophagus and the stomach so that the highly acidic contents of the stomach pass up to the esophagus, which can lead to heartburn and gastro-esophageal reflux disease.
Coffee is not really good for health , Do not consume too much caffeine if it is not necessary . Be careful before you drink or eat something not only coffee. Read the instruction or get advices for doctor if you have some health problem ,don’t keep it to yourself because your health is the most precious thing for you.
