Caffeine is bad for you….caffeine is good for you. Too much coffee will cause cancer; too much chocolate will cause pimples and make you fat. What is a person to believe? I have read several studies that state both of these food and beverage choices are actually GOOD for you, but in moderation. Coffee does help you get a better start to your day, or give you a quick pick up. They are even using small amounts of caffeine in skin care products to help close pores and brighten skin tone.
Quote from WebMD:
“There’s no magic bullet to boost IQ or make you smarter — but certain substances, like caffeine, can energize and help you focus and concentrate. Found in coffee, chocolate, energy drinks, and some medications, caffeine gives you that unmistakable wake-up buzz — though the effects are short term. And more is often less: Overdo it on caffeine and it can make you jittery and uncomfortable.”
Sugar is bad, sugar is good, fake sugar is better—oh, wait, it’s bad now. Truth? According to several different health oriented sites the facts are this. Sugar that occurs naturally in fruits and vegetables is good for you. Sugar that comes from a bowl, or is loaded into store-bought cookies and juices, is NOT good for you. It helps boost your energy and brain power for a short period, and then causes your insulin levels to plummet because there is no fiber to help slow down the digestion of the refined sugar. The Sugar Substitutes are all bad for you, without question. They are made almost entirely of chemicals, and they stay in your body, causing all types of illnesses. From what I have read, if you need something sweet once in a while, a little natural sugar is okay.
