We were so sad to read this today!
A California judge ruled that coffee companies across the state will have to carry a cancer warning label because of a carcinogen that is present in the brewed beverage.
Acrylamide is a known carcinogen that is produced naturally during the process of baking or frying some foods. It is produced in coffee beans when they are roasted, and is prevalent in brewed cups.
The judge noted that neither side disputed that acrylamide is present in coffee. She wrote that the defendants had failed to show that it posed no risk or added any health benefits to coffee at all.
