What you should know about Coffee
Coffee is one of the most chemically treated food crops in the world. The long range effects of synthetic chemicals of coffee jeopardize the environment and the health of those communities where coffee is grown.
Organic farming or sustainable agriculture addresses these environmental concerns. Organic systems seek to imitate nature by achieving stability through crop diversity and through the recycling of energy and nutrients.
Sustainable methods such as terracing, composting, shading, and biological pest and fungus controls are used to replace the dependence on petrochemicals. Organic coffee growers are giving back to the earth what has been taken from it . This secures the land for future harvests and helps protect the people who live on it.
As far as coffee concerns our health, I would look at it as a 'pleasure food' that you may enjoy from time to time if you are in good health. If your health is unstable coffee will make it worse, it takes minerals out of your body. Drinking coffee stresses our kidneys and weakens the bladder by increasing urination, simultaneously putting a strain on the heart.
Coffee tends to add more chaos to our already hectic lives and puts us on the roller coaster. If you can get off the roller coaster of coffee drinking you will have more energy and be able to get things done more calmly and efficiently.
The highly addictive nature of coffee is the hook! Our bodies become dependent on the caffeine to feel normal and we quite easily end up drinking more and more coffee.
