Caffeine The Good The Bad And The Ugly

Caffeine: The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

Have you heard that coffee is good for you?

Or perhaps you’ve heard that coffee is bad for you?

Perhaps you’re confused as to which it is – is it bad or is it good?

Does it depend? And on what?

The World's Drug of Choice

The Telegraph published some interesting stats on the international coffee day in 2017. Did you know that the world's biggest coffee drinkers are:
1. Finland, with 12 kg per capita per year;
2. Norway, with 9.9 kg;
3. Iceland, with 9kg;
7. Switzerland, with 7.9 kg;
13. Italy, with 5.8 kg;
18. France, with 5,1 kg.

And somehow the US comes at the 26th spot.

I find this is quite interesting!

Our days might begin with it. We reach for it to avoid an afternoon crash. It is even offered with dessert after dinner. 

According to USA Today, “Coffee has become more than just a shot of caffeine. It's a $30 billion-a-year national industry, a foodie fixation, an affordable luxury, a boost of disease-fighting antioxidants, a versatile ingredient, an intoxicating aroma, and a beverage that brings people together.”

However, too much of a good thing is still too much. Although caffeine sometimes provides health benefits, there are just as many unhealthy consequences.

In this masterclass "Caffeine: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" you will understand how caffeine is both beneficial and harmful to your health, the ways it interacts with your body, and what you can do to take control of your consumption.
