13 Effects Coffee Has on Your Body


You’ll hear all kinds of urban myths about coffee. “Instant coffee causes cancer!” “You need to drink 2 glasses of water for every cup of coffee!” “Coffee stunts your growth!”

Yet most of these rumours have not a single ground of truth in them.

So Dennies John of Dripped Coffee decided to separate the coffee fact from the coffee fiction by providing some research-based information on what coffee does to the human body. It’s time to cut through the… um, crema… and see what impact coffee actually has on us – and why we love to drink it.

13 Reasons Why Your Brain Craves Coffee

Before we begin, it’s worth noting that scientific research is conducted in specific contexts. Just because coffee has one effect on adults, for example, does not mean it will have the same effect on children. What’s more, scientific research is also constantly being updated.

However, we love that studies from respected universities and research centres have discovered a link between coffee and better health, greater happiness, improved short-term memory, and more. Here’s what Dennies’ research produced, all in one infographic.
