Seng 1 Deon Seng Prof. Presnell Engl. 1103 11/13/12 Why Drink Coffee?

Intro Ever had a cup of coffee and wondered what it is doing to you? I have recently tried a cup of coffee for the first time in my life, and the first thing that came into my mind was, Is it good or bad for me to drink this? The truth is coffee has both benefits and negatives on the human body.

Fundamental Properties Coffee is ranked second among all food commodities behind crude oil. It is the main agricultural export product for most subtropical countries. Coffee brew is best known as a stimulant property primarily because of caffeine, but chemical compounds found in the beverage have many beneficial attributes (Esquivel 488). Due to its increasing global importance, the coffee beverage has had research conducted on its chemical composition because of the opportunity of being beneficial and/or detrimental. Green and roasted beans are significant parts that the properties are researched.

Seng 2 multiple sources referenced within the paper, so should I cite those or the source that I am using??)

Health Risks Because of past research that discussed negativity towards coffee, people still avoid caffeinated coffee because of the worry of the effects on health. Today, research on the subject proves that a few cups a day is actually safe because the beverage does offer health benefits. Studies have confirmed that moderate coffee consumption can lower the risk for type 2 diabetes as the rate of death was lower among regular coffee drinkers than those who dont drink it. Coffee has also been proven to reduce risks of liver damage, Parkinsons disease, and improve cognitive function. Also, for the people that drink coffee daily, their alertness increases especially when fighting sleep deprivation, but moderately.

Can it cause death? Surprisingly, a new study shows that drinking coffee offers a natural way to lower your risk of death. The National Institutes of Health reported that a NIH study found that those who drink coffee have a lower risk of death. The National Cancer Institutes (NCI) found that older adults had a lower risk of death overall by drinking coffee than those who did not drink coffee. They were found to be less likely to die from heart disease, respiratory disease, stroke, injuries and accidents, diabetes, and infections.

The Effects on Sleep Humans with relation to drinking coffee before sleep and drinking other beverages such as water and milk have been studied with disturbances during a period of sleep. As I viewed the data that scientists collected, I discovered that actually drinking coffee before sleeping caused people to have less amount of movements during a period of sleep compared to those who drank hot water. With several trials of seven men tested, the normal amount of movements per hour averaged about 10.42. With hot water, the average amount of movements was 8.43, and with a cup of coffee before going to bed the amount was 8.07. With this discovery, it was determined that coffee does not have a harmful affect on sleeping patterns and the amount of disturbances of periodic sleep.

To Drink Coffee or not? Coffee has been a part of the daily routine for thousands of Indians as a part of their breakfast. This proves the significance it has had on families worldwide. Coffee is defined as a complex mixture of chemicals, including significant amounts of caffeine. The beverage also contains many minerals such as potassium and protective antioxidants. These antioxidants protect against viral infections and the effects of free radicals which are cancer causing particles. Also, coffee can significantly benefit the mood and performance of an individual.
