Smithsonian magazine is reporting that coffee companies in California may soon be required to display a warning label alerting customers to a possible carcinogen in their brews. Coffee contains acrylamide, which is on California’s list of chemicals that require a warning. The ABA Journal also has the story (and more links) here.
On the other hand, it has been reported that drinking coffee helps decrease the risk of many cancers. I have a feeling this is not the last we will hear of this controversy.
