The world is addicted to coffee. Consumption is going up every year, and it shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. So, whether your morning starts with a premium, single-batch brew at home or a caramel macchiato at Starbucks, there’s a pretty good chance you are one of the millions who can’t get their day going without a fresh cup of Joe.

But what exactly is the effect of coffee on the body? Avid drinkers will say that caffeine and coffee are perfectly healthy when taken in moderation and that it can easily form part of a balanced lifestyle. Others, however, are left jittery or uneasy after consuming even a single cup, and they often consider coffee to be unhealthy, sometimes even going as far as to say it’s a drug.

However, countless studies released recently have found coffee to be harmless when consumed in moderation. And regular consumption may even help reduce the risk of some conditions such as Parkinson’s, depression and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Some of this research comes from Harvard Medical School, so it’s not like we’re talking about some blogger telling the world coffee is good for you in the face of strong evidence it is not.

So, then, why is there still so much debate? As with anything, misinformation is the main culprit. Some assumptions have been made, and people with bigger microphones are able to get their voice heard more than the little people, and this has led to coffee getting a bad name. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why the health benefits of coffee are still up for debate.

Illness is inevitable. The human body does not always work as it should, and sometimes we need to use medication and physical therapy to get it back on track. Obviously, that is nothing to be ashamed of. However, when it comes to mental illness, many people do not see it that way. Instead, they consider it a problem with who they are as a person. People who suffer from anxiety tend to blame themselves. If only they were stronger. The same is true of depression. They should be able to snap out of it. With more complex mental illnesses and personality disorders, the self-judgment only gets deeper.

There are two main reasons for this. The first is that most societies do not really understand mental illness. They tend to see it as a weakness of will, rather than an actual disease. To those who haven’t experienced mental illness, “snap out of it” might seem like good advice. The second reason is that self-judgment is a symptom of most mental illnesses. When one is feeling anxious, hopeless, despairing, it is hard to see oneself from an objective perspective. We see ourselves as weak because the illness affects our thought patterns and feelings.
