The big downside to your steaming, or iced, cups of coffee is the chemicals. This is often an overlooked fact, but it’s so important to know and to consider what you’re ingesting. Conventional coffee is among the most intensively chemically treated crops in the world, including synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides.

In fact, conventional store-bought coffee has been shown in tests to have mold, toxins, and pesticides, such as Ochratoxin A, Acrylamide, Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons, and a lot of other nasty chemicals. Exposure to these toxins, especially daily, can cause short-term symptoms like fatigue, weakness, and brain fog, as well as long-term health consequences like cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and more.

Instead of giving up your beloved coffee, just clean up your cup with organic coffee. It may seem like a small thing, but choosing organic for your daily drink can make a significant difference in your body. A study by researchers from the University of California Berkeley and the University of California San Francisco proved that after less than one week of choosing organic food and drinks, toxin levels in the body can dramatically decrease.
