- 7:37 AM
Almost no one who never once felt the pleasure of drinking coffee. Hmm ... So delicious, to the point that coffee lovers have a special name that is coffee mania. But be careful besides the aroma and the taste of the lure, coffee has some side effects or dangers if drunk continuously.

Well, according to the story, coffee beans were originally discovered accidentally by Ethiopian shepherds. Then they make it a "obligatory" drink in a religious ceremony with the intention that someone can stay up all night.

Health hazards for health

In this regard caffeine, is an alkaloid that acts through the inhibition of phosphodiesterase, leading to increased levels of cyclic-nucleotide, which further affects the central nervous system. In addition can be turned into a stimulant drug, and pain relief, caffeine is also reliable as an alternative weight loss. That's because smart caffeine burns fat by increasing the rate of metabolism.

Side effects or health hazards for coffee

A study report says, 100 milligrams of caffeine (about a cup of coffee) can increase the rate of metabolism 3-4 percent. In some volunteers with normal weight found, the effect is apparent 2.5 hours after they consume it.

However, the researchers stated that burning calories stimulated by caffeine would be better if accompanied by exercise. Another thing, this is not to say with a lot of coffee means free side effects.

In excessive doses, between 2-7 cups, coffee may cause anxiety, nausea, headache, tense muscles, sleep disorders, and palpitations, sometimes anorexia. Meanwhile, if the dose is higher (above 750 mg), will appear a variety of emotional and sensory disorders, especially hearing and vision (

The danger of coffee in the long run

The negative side of caffeine or the dangers of coffee will not be felt there. A series of studies have taken a long-term impact.

In the Reader's Digest issue of December 1994, it was reported that women who consumed 300 mg of caffeine each day had a 27 percent lower chance of becoming pregnant than those who were free of it. Although the mechanism is not yet known, a hypothesis says, it is likely that this substance can lower hormone levels-such as estrogen-to affect ovulation.

Although the link between coffee and cancer risk is unclear, some studies suggest that coffee may affect DNA and increase the risk of developing bladder and ovarian cancers. In addition, drinking very hot coffee can cause damage to cells in the mouth and throat, which if done repeatedly can trigger cancer in that section.

In another conclusion, women who consumed 5-7 grams of caffeine per month (equivalent to two cups of coffee per day) were twice as likely to have endometriosis than those who did not consume caffeine.

Other coffee hazards are in terms of "ability" of caffeine to remove calcium through the urine, which further decreases bone strength and makes bone breaks easily. The Harvard study found, in postmenopausal women who consume lots of caffeine (more than six cups of coffee per day), the risk of hip fractures is three times higher than those that do not.

But a study of nearly 1,000 postmenopausal women in California showed that, on moderate consumption (by drinking at least a glass of milk per day) can help offset the loss of calcium caused by caffeine contained in two cups of coffee.

In order to avoid the dangers of coffee as in the event above, be careful with coffee. We may not immediately stop drinking habits because caffeine can make "addictive". When the dose of intake is reduced, many of the "raiders" report an inability to work properly, anxiety, drowsiness, and headaches. In extreme cases, there is even nausea and vomiting.

Well, how about coffee mania? May be coffee but be wise, do not be excessive. The taste and aroma of delicious and tempting coffee should not make us complacent about the dangers of coffee.
