Scientists had given many mixed updates about the effects of coffee but most recently a California judge had updated about the same. He tells about the negative aspects of coffee which can be cancer causing. The main cause behind this is the chemicals known as the carcinogen which called to be dangerous for a person’s health.
After this update, the Council for Education and Research on Toxics asked the coffee industry to remove out acrylamide from the processing of food items like potato chip which doesn’t get vanished since long. The industry which is led and supervised by Starbucks Corp tells that the chemicals on coffee are not harmful at all. But the Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elihu Berle tells on Wednesday that the coffee makers had not presented the tests properly.
“While plaintiff offered evidence that consumption of coffee increases the risk of harm to the fetus, to infants, to children and to adults, defendants’ medical and epidemiology experts testified that they had no opinion on causation,” Berle wrote in his proposed ruling. “Defendants failed to satisfy their burden of proving … that consumption of coffee confers a benefit to human health.”
Now the suit stands against Starbucks and 90 other companies in effect of the controversial law passed by California voters in 1986, which is linked with the culling cancer-causing chemicals from myriad products.
“This lawsuit has made a mockery of Prop. 65, has confused consumers, and does nothing to improve public health,” said William Murray who is the president and CEO of the National Coffee Association, who added that coffee had been shown to be a healthy beverage.
“I firmly believe if the potato chip industry can do it, so can the coffee industry. A warning won’t be that effective because it’s an addictive product,” Metzger said.
