Coffee causes cancer so says the kooks in Cali

Enjoy your morning cup. I like mine black.


Bad news, coffee drinkers: A California judge has ruled that coffee companies across the state will have to carry a cancer warning label because of a carcinogen that is present in the brewed beverage.

Superior Court Judge Elihu Berle sided with a nonprofit's case against dozens of coffee companies, including Starbucks, Peets and other chains, saying that businesses that sold coffee were in violation of a state regulation requiring businesses with at least 10 employees to disclose the prevalence of carcinogens and toxic chemicals.

“While plaintiff offered evidence that consumption of coffee increases the risk of harm to the fetus, to infants, to children and to adults, defendants’ medical and epidemiology experts testified that they had no opinion on causation,” Berle wrote. “Defendants failed to satisfy their burden of proving by a preponderance of evidence that consumption of coffee confers a benefit to human health.”

    Toasting bread at home also produces a carcinogen.

    I think Californians should come with a warning label.

    It's just lawyers making money. The so-called carcinogenic, acrylamide, is also found in fried chicken, French fries, a wide variety of processed foods.

    I hate coffee. Not because it is not good for you, just don't like the taste. If I am feeling good, after a late breakfast on the weekend I can get down a cup. Or after dinner in a nice restaurant.. But it has been years

    I will still drink my cup of coffee, a day without coffee will make me feel lazy.
