Do you know what Acrylamide is?
Acrylamide is found in coffee and you should be concerned if you are a regular drinker of coffee. Coffee beans seem to form acrylamide when coffee beans are roasted, and there is no way you can escape if you are a regular coffee drinker. It is also found in baked foods. Instant coffee is supposed to have 100% more acrylamide than fresh roasted coffee. However, coffee drinking is not linked to cancer, in fact linked with a reduced risk of developing some types of cancers. So, enjoy your cup of Joe in the morning. This chemical was first found in foods in 2002. Day to-day we do expose ourselves to this chemical through smoking, and second hand smoke, personal care products and household items. You could get workplace exposure to this chemical without your knowing and cause damage to your nervous system.
