Study Shows Coffee Drinkers Slash Risks of Heart Disease, Stroke

A study published by researchers at the University of Southern California shows daily coffee intake leads to a reduced risk of death from heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, kidney disease and respiratory illness.

This multiethnic study analyzed data from more than 185,000 adults between the ages of 45-75. Study participants were monitored on average of 16 years.

The mortality risk for the conditions mentioned earlier was 12% lower for one cup a day drinkers compared to non-drinkers, and 18% lower for those that drank three cups of coffee every day. White Americans, African-Americans, Latin Americans and Japanese-Americans all saw lower mortality rates from drinking coffee.


Only drink organic coffee!

Coffee is one of the most chemically treated crops in the world. These chemicals enter your body when drinking coffee, and cause severe harm to your health.

That’s why if you drink coffee, tea or any beverage, make sure it is organic. Organic is your assurance that the crop has not been treated with chemicals or genetically modified.

There’s been lots of discussion and lots of studies about the health impacts of coffee.

Some say coffee is OK for your health. Some say it’s good. Some say it is bad. Read to the end of this post to learn our opinion here at The Drs. Wolfson.

There is one thing about coffee though that NO ONE DISPUTES. More chemical fertilizers are sprayed on coffee than nearly any other crop in the world!

And that IS the UNDISPUTED PROBLEM, chemical fertilizers ARE harmful to your health.

Now don’t go running. We’re not telling you to stop drinking coffee. Many people feel they would die without their morning cup of Joe, even with a little poison along the way.

However, we advise you to be highly selective about the type of coffee you drink.

You should only drink CERTIFIED ORGANIC COFFEE.

Here’s why:

Chemical fertilizers have been directly linked to all sorts of health problems. They also harm the environment and the people who work with them.

Up to 250 pounds per acre of chemical fertilizers are sprayed on coffee. Most of the coffee beans used by Americans is imported, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture has nearly no control over the type and amount of chemicals used on coffee produced in other countries.

When you drink conventional coffee, you’re drinking pesticide residue from these chemical sprays. These pesticide residues have been directly linked to cancer, heart disease, reproductive harm, and endocrine disruptions.

Why expose yourself to that risk, and why drink coffee covered in chemicals, when you could drink it naturally, without all that garbage?

Here are the coffees we drink:

Truth be told, caffeine is an addiction and is definitely not Paleo. Caffeine can increase heart attack risk in genetically slow metabolizers. Caffeine can raise blood pressure. Caffeine can lead to heart rhythm issues. Caffeine can exacerbate anxiety, stress, and obviously, be a cause of sleep disorders.

But if you’re going to drink it, make it organic.

Until next time, enjoy your morning Joe!
