Is Coffee Good Or Bad For You? Hasan Investigates | Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj | Netflix

  • Published on Oct 21, 2019
  • Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the country, with almost two-thirds of Americans drinking at least one cup of coffee a day. Despite its popularity, there seems to be conflicting research surrounding the drink's health benefits. As an avid coffee drinker himself, Hasan decided to investigate the age old question: is coffee good or bad for you? Hasan compared the data drawn from researchers and scientists over a number of decades to find out if the evidence overwhelmingly supports or opposes drinking coffee. The results gave Hasan a whole new perspective about data studies.

    Well prepare for kidney stones. If you drink that much coffee most likely you'll have them when you're older. After you pass that first one let me know how you feel then. Like most our mothers told us "everything in moderation", that might be best, huh?

    anything in excess is bad, ever since i started drinking a cup (or two max) of milk coffee everyday I haven't been able to get rid of that habit, I feel lethargic without it and get headaches. Ironically I began drinking it to get rid of sleepiness and headaches in the first place. I guess it does create an unhealthy dependency and i'm stuck in a vicious cycle.

    tl;dw: scientific papers about coffee's health benefits/detriments can be contradictory because scientists are pressured to come out with more papers more often, lowering the quality of their research overall.

    The problem isn't just the science, but also how the scientific results are misunderstood and reported by click/view crazy websites/news.

    Interesting but misleading view of academia/research, unless it only considers quantitative and exact sciences, sciences - social scientist/scholar/professor/researcher writing, also urban planner, critical thinker, affordable housing advocate, etc. Academia and universities increasingly for profit agendas are the root cause of our need to publish to, quite literally, survive in academia. Yet, particularly white male egos in ivy league/type universities, who just want promotion and recognition also partly to blame. As you might expect, women of color in academia, exactly opposite side of the same coin - we publish less, earn less...
