What Are Some of the Coffee Myths?

Everybody loves coffee. So much so that it is estimated that Starbucks alone sells upwards of 4 million cups of coffee every single day. But despite its popularity, many of us feel somewhat guilty about our caffeine-rich habit, based on the idea that coffee is bad for us.

Is this really true? How often do we think about the effects of coffee in a positive way?

Dr. Uche Odiatu, dentist and Wellness expert from Toronto, believes the idea that coffee is bad is a myth. In this candid discussion with Dr. John O’Keefe, Director of Knowledge Networks CDA, Dr. Odiatu champions the benefits of coffee as what he calls the world’s most popular psychoactive drug.

From resetting the adrenal glands to providing essential fiber and nutrients, Dr. Odiatu points to published studies demonstrating that drinking coffee both decreases heart disease and increases life expectancy. Yet, despite his obvious affection for the caffeine-rich brew, Dr. Odiatu does offer a wise word of caution: everything in moderation.
