Back and Forth


According to CNN, California is about to decide if coffee should come with a cancer warning because it contains acrylamide, whatever that is. Well, its a chemical that apparently exists in higher quantities in french fries, but I don’t see those coming with a warning anytime soon.


“… a large number of epidemiologic studies (both case-control and cohort studies) in humans have found no consistent evidence that dietary acrylamide exposure is associated with the risk of any type of cancer.”

So leave it to California to go overboard, once again. True, drinking coffee by the gallon is surely harmful. But an equal amount of Coke is also surely more harmful than coffee. For that matter, so is alcohol and, maybe, milk.

Was it not just a few years ago that people were touting coffee as a cancer-fighting agent with anti-oxidants?

Coffee, like eggs, alternates between being good for you and bad for you.

So a California court will decide the fate of coffee in that state, even though the entire country is awash in corn syryp, refined sugar, GMO foods, fluoride, etc…

Is this supposed to make no sense?
