Should coffee require a cancer warning label?

April 07, 2018

Should coffee require a cancer warning label?  

A Los Angeles County Superior Judge thinks so and has ruled that all coffee shops and sellers in the state of California must label their product and warn their consumers.

How did the American Institute for Cancer Research respond?

"There are hundreds of epidemiological studies on coffee and cancer and essentially none suggest increased cancer risk. On a “cancer worry” scale from 0 to 10, coffee should be solidly at 0 and smoking at 10; they should not have similar warning labels. Those who like drinking coffee should have no concerns at all, except perhaps, if they add too much sugar and cream or are very sensitive to the effects of caffeine."
