Is coffee bad for you?
Antioxidants. Coffee contains numerous antioxidants: Cafestol, phenols trigonelline, quinine and many more. So habit coffee drinkers can feel better knowing that each $4 coffee they buy is doing good for their health. They are starting to realize coffee maybe the largest supplier of antioxidants you can consume.
Staining. Coffee is dark and acidic and since people drink it habitually it is one of the main causes of teeth discoloration. Coffee should be avoided completely when you are in the process of whitening your teeth as it is easily absorbed when your teeth are in their dehydrated post bleached stage. This also means any white fabric it touches will have the same effect.
Cholesterol. Coffee beans contain cafestol and kahweol, two ingredients that appear to raise LDL cholesterol levels. Filtering the coffee traps most of the LDL, but cafestol and kahweol are found in espresso, turkish coffee, french press and scandinavian style “cooked coffee”.
