People will believe anything they read on the Internet, especially if they’re not fully alert. If you’ve been surfing the Internet without your morning cup of joe because you heard coffee is bad for you-wake up! Not everything you read is true. Here are five of the most common coffee myths.

Afternoon coffee will keep you up all night

Yes, the caffeine in coffee is a stimulant. That’s why we love it so much. We also love sleep, however. Many people avoid an afternoon coffee pick-me-up because they’re afraid it will keep them awake at all hours of the night. Fortunately, that’s not true. Our bodies process and digest the caffeine within four to seven hours. This means most people can get an afternoon coffee and have no trouble going to sleep at night, unless you go to bed outrageously early. If that’s the case, you’ll probably be so well rested you don’t need coffee anyways.

Coffee will sober you up

Caffeine will definitely make a drunken person more alert, but it won’t reverse the affects of alcohol. It might even cause more problems. If an intoxicated person is feeling wide awake and ready to go, he or she will be more likely to drink and drive or make other bad decisions.

This means most people can get an afternoon coffee and have no trouble going to sleep at night, unless you go to bed outrageously early.

Coffee helps you lose weight

Drinking a cup of coffee will speed up your metabolism, but just barely. It will also temporarily reduce your appetite. While both of these things make coffee sound like a diet we can actually commit to, the benefits are not significant enough for coffee to be an effective weight loss tool.

Coffee stunts your growth

There is no scientific evidence that coffee affects a person’s growth. This myth has been around for years, but your height is much more likely to be affected by your genetics than your coffee consumption.

You can’t drink coffee if you’re pregnant

There are no solid studies indicating that caffeine is harmful for a fetus. Just to be safe, most experts recommend that women limit their caffeine to 200 milligrams because it can pass through the placenta to reach the baby.
