Pesticides in Coffee are a big problem
Toxins in coffee are a little know problem. Coffee is the most consumed beverage on the planet. It is also one of the healthiest beverages you can drink as long as you know what you are drinking.
Only 3% of coffees available worldwide today are organic, which means 97% are treated with pesticides and other chemicals. Some farmers use low-toxicity pesticides responsibly, but many do not, and it is quite difficult to monitor. Most developing countries that grow coffee have little to no regulations on the use of pesticides and chemicals on food products. Some actually use chemicals to treat coffee that has been banned in the US and Europe. Some say that the roasting process destroys pesticides. Research suggests that the chemicals actually penetrate the green bean and that roasting fails to eradicate most of them. This results in pesticide residue in coffee after it’s been brewed.
Pesticide exposure has been linked to ADHD in kids, Alzheimer’s Disease, birth defects, breast cancer, other cancers, depression, fertility issues, immune system damage, low IQ in kids, ovarian cancer, Parkinson’s Disease, prostate cancer and respiratory problems.
