Coffee - the good the bad and the ugly

If your body is your temple, then you should drink coffee, that's according the latest research coming out of the U.S.  However you shouldn't drink it too hot!

Following a series of new experiments, research is finding that coffee is helping to slow the growth of prostate cancer cells.  The research is fairly new and needs further experiments but the early results are very encouraging.

Scientists have been looking at coffee for a number of years and new findings are coming out and we should soon know much more in the coming years. The current research is showing the coffee bean contains 1000 nonvolatile chemical compounds and over 1500 volatile compounds and scientists are dissecting this information.

However, new research is suggesting drinking boiling hot tea or coffee could almost double the risk of developing cancer of the esophagus. Scalding water is problematic to the human body and damages the lining of the mouth and throat which can aid tumors, say scientists.

A study of over 50,000 people found those who drank their coffee at temperature of 60 C were 90% more likely to have problems.  So buy a coffee pod machine and of course one of our pod holders and this will brew your coffee to the perfect temperature.
