Some people hate it, but most love it. It’s impossible to imagine our everyday lives without coffee, in all its different varieties and types. But some people should stay away from coffee. We’ll tell you more.
Austrians love coffee. This was the result of a survey conducted by Tchibo in 2020. Cappuccino, latte macchiato, or espresso. 89.1 percent of the population drinks this miracle drink every day. This adds up to around 162 liters per capita per year. That is more than the amount of water consumed. There are many myths about whether coffee is good for the body and skin or harmful. Beware: there are indeed risks associated with coffee consumption, as the drink affects the body. Some groups are particularly affected and should, therefore, avoid the drink.
People with stomach and bowel problems and bladder weakness
Coffee stimulates intestinal activity. In principle, this is not a bad thing. However, people with irritable bowel syndrome should be careful. Coffee can promote diarrhoea and cause stomach pain and is not well tolerated, as the drink increases the urge to go to the toilet. People who already have to go to the toilet frequently should avoid coffee.
People with panic attacks
We all know that coffee is a stimulant because it contains caffeine. If you are already nervous and have panic attacks or an anxiety disorder, the drink can make this condition even worse. So, if you suffer from nervousness, restlessness, or anxiety, it’s better not to have a cappuccino in the morning.
