Is coffee bad for me?

I drink coffee almost every morning. Is it true that it can stunt or slow down my growth? Should I stop drinking it?


Hey Girlie,

Nope, coffee doesn't stunt your growth. That's just a myth. 


One cup of coffee (or another caffeinated drink like soda) a day probably won't do you any harm, but if you're drinking more than that, it might be a good idea to cut back a little, because too much caffeine can cause anxiety and interfere with your sleep. Generally, any drink high in caffeine is not going to hydrate you very much, and in order to stay at maximum energy to enjoy all of your activities, you should stick to drinks like water and juice, that are going to give you that necessary hydration.


If you have trouble getting yourself going in the morning without a shot of caffeine, make sure you're getting enough sleep at night, exercising regularly and drinking enough water. If you're searching for a morning beverage to replace your coffee, try herbal tea or green tea, which still has some caffeine, but less than coffee.
