(Coffee) health warning in California?
« on: 02/02/2018, 02:25 PM »
I'm all for transparency when it comes to consumer purchases, but wonder whether the legislators in California are taking this one a little too far (re Acrylamide, a chemical created when coffee beans are roasted, which has been linked to cancer)?

I would say that the amount of pesticides and herbicides used in production pose a far greater risk in the long term than anything that happens in the roasting practice!
