4 myths about coffee

Myth 1: You can lose weight drinking coffee

Dieters the world over are looking for the magic bullet to help them lose the pounds and coffee has been seen as a solution but wait (or should that be weight?) they’re wrong. Caffeine can, minutely, increase metabolism, but not enough to have any noticeable effect on weight loss. Caffeine does, however, give you a tad more energy to exercise though.

Myth 2: Caffeine is highly addictive

Caffeine has only a slightly addictive quality to it, but if you manage to avoid it for between 36-48 hours, the effects can be overcome quite easily.

Myth 3: Drinking coffee will keep you from growing tall

This myth is probably just a mean tall person telling a short person that their coffee drinking is the reason they are the height they are. There is absolutely no foundation in science to suggest that drinking coffee stunts your growth.

Myth 4: Coffee causes a range of diseases

Drinking coffee has been blamed for several serious health conditions from cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, scabies and even rabies. Drinking two or three cups of coffee a day WILL NOT cause any of these according to the latest medical research. If you have high blood pressure, however, drinking too much coffee may cause your heart rate to increase. In fact, most research into drinking coffee points to its health- giving qualities not its side effects.
