1. Methyl parathion
This is the most toxic pesticide of all. It is is highly toxic to humans, birds, fish, and mammals. It’s used to fight leaf miner infestations. Leaf miners are insects that eat at leaves of plants. Despite how dangerous it is, it’s still (mis)used in some countries.
This pesticide is used against coffee cherry borer, a common coffee consuming bug. It’s doesn’t dissolve easily and takes ages to break down in soil and is toxic to most animals. It affects the central nervous system, reproductive organs, kidneys, and liver, and is considered to be worse than the pest itself; it’s even been responsible for human death!
This is also used against common coffee pests and has been banned in the US for household use because it has caused human death and birth defects. Needless to say, it’s quite detrimental to delicate ecosystems.
Copper-based fungicide used to against coffee rust. Only slightly toxic to birds, little is known about its effect on humans, but it is suspected that there is potential for reproductive problems with chronic exposure. (Like people who drink coffee every day.) It has been found to induce hyperactivity in rats. The major concern is that long-term use of this and other copper-based fungicides is copper accumulation in soils, such as that found in coffee farms in Kenya and in Costa Rica. Copper toxicity has been found in other crops grown in these soils, and copper impacts other biochemical and biological processes in soil which will poison people eating these crops not to mention the people who drink coffee.
One 8-ounce cup of coffee has 95 milligrams of caffeine and a 1-ounce single shot of espresso has 64 milligrams. Consuming too much caffeine can make you restless, anxious, irratable and then dead. Caffeine is an acid or oxidant poison with a pH of 5.5 and an oxidative reduction pH of over +250 mV. When you drink a cup of coffee the body reacts to the poisons in the coffee and you feel it as adrenalin rush as the body starts releasing alkaline buffers to neutralize the poison or the caffeine acid. It only takes 3 cups of coffee or acid to go into potential caffeine intoxication or 300mg which can cause a cardiac arrest. One drop of pue caffeine or 2 grams of caffeine powder will kill you instantly.
Coffee has a perfect pH for cancerous cells 5.5. Research at the Brigham Young University showed that you can keep cancer cells alive indefinitely in a cup of coffee.
Coffee is NOT an antioxicant but an oxidant which acitivates the alkaline buffering system and depletes your body of alkalizing minerals such as sodium bicaronatea and potassium bicaronate.
Because coffee an acid beverage it causes the stomach to produce sodium bicarbonate which increases the hydrochloric acid in the stomach leading to acid reflux, GERD, ulcers and stomach cancer.
9. Damages Cover Cells of the Stomach
Coffee is a hot beverage and any hot beverage will damage the cover cells of the stomach which cells produce sodium bicarbonate for maintaining the alkaline design of all the body fluids.
Coffee is saturated with hydrogen ions or protons and thus steals energy from your body making you more tired after the stimulating effects wear-off. This creates the addiction for more coffee in order to achieve an energy increase or buzz. Continued use of coffee leads to enervation then irritation, then inflammation, then ulceration and finally degeneration or cancer.
Coffee increases the level of cholesterol. Why? Because coffee contains an acid substance called cafestol which triggers the rise of cholesterol levels. The cafestol blocks a receptor in an intestinal pathway crucial for cholesterol regulation, and is the most potent food chemical to do this. Increased amounts of this acid will increase cholesterol for the purpose of buffering and maintaining the alkaline design of the body.
12. Intestinal Villi Damage
Coffee compromises the alkalinity of the small intestine at a pH of 8.4. This causes the intestinal villi to lie down preventing the biological transformation of food or chyme into stem cells which takes place in the crypts of the intestinal villi. This leads to lowered blood counts, improper blood cell formation and symptoms anemia, pernicious anemia, and hemolytic anemia. Coffee also damages the intestinal villi leading to more serious conditions such as proper bone, muscle and organ regeneration.
Coffee contains over 1000 chemicals of which only 22 have been studied leaving 978 left to study. All of the chemicals studied to date have been found to be carcinogentic. So next time to pick up that cup of coffee think of it as your cup of cancer.
14. Sugar and Cream
Add the sugar and cream and you just created one toxic and addictive acidic/poisonous beverage.
15. Heart Disease –
There is controversial scientific evidence linking coffee consumption to heart diseases. Some studies even state that “consumption is associated with significantly increased risk of cardiovascular disease.” These same studies have shown a cholesterol-raising effect in some of the chemical compounds of coffee, such as determines, cafestol, kahweol and plasma homocysteine. This may be of-set by some of the antioxidants, but the overall agreement is that coffee may adversely effect the heart.
16. Blood Vessels
Coffee disturbs the functioning of blood vessels, both in turgidity and tone.
17. Cardiovascular System
Coffee affects our nervous system, heart rhythms and has been consistently linked to irregular heartbeats. It may also adversely affect blood pressure.
Coffee drinking should be heavily avoided by people at risk, or who have Osteoporosis. Studies show a link between drinking coffee and urinary calcium excretion.
Many people report that coffee increases heartburn.
20. Sleep Disturbance
Coffee, particularly in the evening or at night, can lead to sleep disturbance.
Drinking coffee depletes water reserves in the body.
While the FDA recognizes caffeine as “safe,” it is still a drug, as it significantly alters the nervous system, leading to addiction over time.
23. Extreme Withdrawal Symptoms
You may experience withdrawal symptoms when you try to give up coffee. This can lead to headaches, irritability, body aches, and other more extreme symptoms.
Coffee beans are green and alkaline on the tree until they are fermented and spoiled rotten to a brown acidic, dis-ease causing color.
