How Can A Product That Contains Carcinogens Actually Be Good For Us?

According to the largest-ever study of the health effects of coffee, it looks like coffee drinkers may live longer.

The study was published by the New England Journal Of Medicine, where the researchers state that

“In this large prospective study, coffee consumption was inversely associated with total and cause-specific mortality.”

Yet coffee contains over 20 compounds that have been shown to cause cancer in laboratory animals. And there may be more. A thousand or so additional compounds in coffee have yet to be tested. We just don’t know.

So how can a product that contains known carcinogens be good for us?

When we drink coffee, we benefit from the whole coffee bean. But if we isolate individual compounds from coffee, we can have a whole different experience.

Which underlines the fact that nature packs super-complex chemistry into deceptively-simple packages. We are only beginning to understand it. But it is clear that the benefits of the whole are different from the effects of the parts.

And that is why at Gaelle Organic we use whole natural ingredients in our products, in preference to synthesized ones.
