Book Description

26 Jun 2009
This book exposes coffee's darker side that scientists know, but the coffee industry has tried to suppress. Coffee is highly addictive, offers no nutritional value, and has not been proven safe. The Truth About Coffee uncovers short- and long-term health issues associated with coffee consumption. The book reveals why women should avoid coffee, the role of coffee in adrenal depletion, and how coffee affects pH balance, and ultimately, health. Discover how eliminating coffee from your diet can not only improve your life, but quite possibly save it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Convincing 18 May 2010
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on Amazon.com
"The jolt we get from coffee is actually a stress hormone rush." ~ pg. 20

My husband says that everything you eat will eventually kill you. It seems this is true because each day a new food is bad for you. I'm however of the opinion that some things will kill you faster than others. Coffee is apparently one of the drinks you should avoid at all costs or at least consume infrequently. Two cups a day is the recommended limit!

What if you knew that a substance could cause fibrocystic breast disease, birth defects, blindness, heart disease, stomach disorders, insomnia, pancreatic cancer, mood swings, skin lesions, myocardial infarction, physiological disturbances, urinary incontinence, high blood pressure, peptic ulcers, headaches and gastrointestinal disorders? Would you still ingest that substance? That substance is "coffee."

"The Truth About Coffee" should be required reading for anyone concerned about their health. If you are hooked on coffee you need to read this book immediately. Your life depends on it! I've read other books on caffeine addiction and have stopped drinking coffee on a regular basis. I now think of it as a treat to enjoy once in a while. I came to that conclusion because I had some of the symptoms this book talks about. Mostly I had incredible headaches that were only relieved by more coffee.

One thing I found interesting is that it seems the safest coffee is from 7-Eleven. It has the least amount of "acrylamide," a toxic chemical in coffee formed during the roasting process.

If you are totally addicted to coffee, don't give up because there are ways to wean yourself off your daily habit without experiencing so many withdrawal symptoms. This book will show you the way to better health in a matter of days. I encourage you to read this book and to give a copy to everyone you know.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst coffee books ever, littered with errors 29 April 2013
By Maja - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of the worst books ever written about coffee. The author clearly has an agenda, and she goes to extremes of proving it by simply invoking so-called "facts" as being correct to justify her poorly researched book. The book is littered with errors, most incredibly the Author's statement that there has been found "no evidence" on the multiple benefits of coffee. This is simply not true, and makes you wonder if she ever even researched anything on the subject at all. A long list of different research studies have found that a long list of over 30 different vitamins and minerals are contained especially in Arabica coffee, but also in the Robusta species, albight not as many. I have no problems with people questioning the health issues of coffee, but multiple research studies have found multiple evidence of the benefit of drinking coffee. It's fine if you don't agree and rather want to support the research that has found the opposite effect, but don't be so unethical to suppress the existence of that data, that is simply unprofessional.

5.0 out of 5 stars Offers some intriguing dissections and advice, highly recommended 3 Dec 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Coffee has slowly had a controversy brewing up about it. "The Truth About Coffee" delves into the downsides of this caffeine fueled drink that many people have grown dependent on throughout the years. Stating that coffee has many problems that could be drawn as parallels to a drug addiction, "The Truth About Coffee" offers some intriguing dissections and advice, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Specatcular 11 Dec 2010
By Harman - Published on Amazon.com
"The Truth About Coffe" by Marina Kushner is a truly informative spectacle. This book reveals the darker side of coffee that most people are unaware of. One will not think of coffee the same way ever again when reading this book. Coffee is a drink that many usually find useful to negate the effects of sleepiness. What Kushner does here is uncover and elaborate upon the other detrimental effects that this simple brown drink has been scientifically proven to deliver. Kushner has definately done the research necessary to effectively deliver the facts to the reader in a way that seems interesting and proper. This is a truly informative and interesting book that should not be missed by even the most occasional of readers.
