Chocolate vs. coffee Essay
A. There are many people who drink coffee every day. But do they live a healthy life? One of my relations Ã¢â¬â my father- is Ã¢â¬Å¡coffee addictedÃ¢â¬Ë. (Almost) Every morning, except of pure water or some fresh juice, he drinks coffee. Also, in every restaurant he goes to the first thing he orders is piccolo coffee with milk. ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s far from enough, donÃ¢â¬â¢t you think so? IÃ¢â¬â¢m really afraid about his health, especially because he is extreme smoker also. And so IÃ¢â¬â¢ll try to persuade at least you, that drinking coffee more then 3 times a day is unbelievably unhealthy. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s because: B. Coffee is quite popular drink, however. There are further arguments for the coffee, for example it can lower the risk of ParkinsonÃ¢â¬â¢s disease, diabetes and colon cancer and it prevents cavities. But itÃ¢â¬â¢s not a hundred percent sure. The fact is that if you drink more then 3 little cups of coffee per day it is more harmful then healthful. And itÃ¢â¬â¢s not healthy to drink coffee if you didnÃ¢â¬â¢t reach 18 years, until this age it has only few beneficial effects. But I think its good argument and really supporting fact. I was really surprised and quite shocked when I read the information I found on one webpage: Ã¢â¬Å"People who smoke and are heavy drinkers have less heart disease and liver damage when they regularly consume large amounts of coffee compared to those who donÃ¢â¬â¢t, Ã¢â¬Å"(http://men. webmd. com/features/coffee-new-health-food). That was really surprising for me; I never thought that something like this can be true. IÃ¢â¬â¢m really delighted to this and IÃ¢â¬â¢m happy that something like this was proved. Thanks to this IÃ¢â¬â¢ll support my father in drinking of this caffeine drink. ThereÃ¢â¬â¢s also some idea that coffee helps to control attacks of asthma when medication isnÃ¢â¬â¢t available. ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s a valid point, but it wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t proved yet, so it doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t have to be true. Another argument for coffee may be proved by anyone who drinks coffee quite often: Coffee improves our mood. I can prove this also eve I donÃ¢â¬â¢t drink coffee very often. And if we wonÃ¢â¬â¢t drink too much of it, it can give us the appropriate amount of energy we need to finish the project, even we are really tired. To reach these effects, we have to drink 2 cups of coffee at least. C. But even coffee has many effective beneficial effects on our health, chocolate it much better (I think). There are further arguments against coffee, for example, even thought coffee is a drink, you will be even thirstier after drinking it. Chocolate is good for our arteries while coffee (at least the amount of caffeine it contains) damages them. Chocolate contains cocoa flavonoids (natural antioxidants) which keep the blood from making too thick and sticky and raise our good cholesterol, I think this negligible benefit. Some studies shown, that chocolate also lowers personÃ¢â¬â¢s blood pressure and so the risk of heart attack and heart diseases decreases. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s also generally known chocolate helps our body to produce endorphins. The healthiest type of chocolate is dark chocolate. White chocolate is not very healthy at all. And I donÃ¢â¬â¢t like it. It tastes like vanilla and in many cases itÃ¢â¬â¢s really tasteless. Also milk chocolate isnÃ¢â¬â¢t so healthy; even itÃ¢â¬â¢s my favorite one. But back, to the dark chocolate. It lowers high blood pressure. Dark chocolate is also essential antioxidant. Studies have shown that milk can interfere with the absorption of vitamins and antioxidants from dark chocolate. D. At the end of this writing my state of view is different in some way, but I always prefer chocolate. But I really didnÃ¢â¬â¢t think that coffee has so many beneficial effects and that itÃ¢â¬â¢s so helpful. I just thought its only tasty mould. But I found out, it is also quite healthy. But anyway, chocolate is better. It tastes better and it helps us produce endorphins better then coffee. And another benefit is that you can take it anywhere you want. With coffee itÃ¢â¬â¢s a little problem. But donÃ¢â¬â¢t forget that there is a limit for everything.
