It’s early Monday morning and you are still reeling from the effects of the past weekend- understandably. For those who have to be at the office before 6a.m you make sure you swing by Java for that espresso to jolt your senses. You will probably have another one before that early morning meeting, just to be sure. Unbeknown to you, unfortunately, you might as well be drinking yourself to a slow, painful cancerous death.
Medical research has shown that drinking coffee could expose you to a chemical called acrylamide. Acrylamide is a chemical that can form when certain foods are cooked, fried or baked at high temperatures. According to the research, it is mainly found in potato products, grains and coffee. Fortunately for us, it’s not in dairy products, meats or fish.
Now, if acrylamide is not “life-threatening” enough for you, consider this. Further medical research has also shown that drinking a cup of coffee first thing in the morning blunts the energy-boosting effects of caffeine and may lead to increased tolerance of the stimulant.

Cortisol hormone This is because as humans, we all have a ‘biological clock’ that controls the body metabolism processes. One such mechanism is the release of a hormone called cortisol which makes us feel alert and awake. Essentially, the peak production of cortisol occurs between 8–9 am (under normal circumstances.) This means that at the time that many people are having their first cup of coffee on the way to work, their bodies are actually “naturally caffeinating” the most effectively.
The effects of caffeine consumption at times of peak cortisol levels actually diminishes the effectiveness of the additional stimulation. Or to make it simpler, taking coffee when your body is not in need will result in higher tolerance. As such, the coffee high you seek will become elusive. Not just that, but the more caffeine interferes with cortisol levels, the more your health is affected.
Besides, fresh juice is always an option. Have a great Monday morning people!
