Is Coffee Healthy? – Orlando Sentinel


Coffee comes with some health risks beyond being nervous. The high caffeine content in coffee can temporarily increase blood pressure and adrenaline and lead to stress responses in fight or flight in mood and actions. Caffeine is not recommended for people who are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or breastfeeding. Caffeine is a dependency-forming substance that has been linked to headaches, nausea, depression, and muscle aches and can be toxic in children in high doses. Finally, caffeine is a mild diuretic, which means you can become dehydrated. Be careful not to replace your daily water intake with coffee.
