Can Coffee Really Make You Short????!!!!?!

Question: Can Coffee Really Make You Short!?!?!?!?!!!!!?
I LOVE coffee ALOT!!! and i always drink it and people tell me that coffee makes u short and idk if i stop drinking coffee or not!? Does it make u short!?!?!?!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Coffee does not make you short, stunt your growth, or anything like that!. As long as you get enough calcium then it won't affect you in the long run like one guy states!.

Anybody saying that coffee makes you short ot keeps you from growing, including those here are complete idiots!. They also most likely voted for our current president elect too!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

If you are not growing anymore (i!.e!. you are already mature!), you may think that drinking coffee and making you short is only an urban legend!. But wait a while, it does indeed make you short later on (years probably) when your bones are already affected, since coffee is believed to affect the loss of calcium in your body!. And when your bones are affected, your posture is also affected, and apparently it will make you look short!. I used to be 5'11" now I am only 5'10" and I drink coffee, lots of it!.

Here is a quote from sources:

"Coffee contains caffeine, which can increase calcium loss in urine!. Some scientists have suggested that a high caffeine intake is a risk factor for osteoporosis!. In one study, drinking one cup of coffee caused an extra six mg of calcium to be lost, suggesting that drinking one to two cups of coffee a day will not greatly affect your calcium levels!. However, statistics show that drinking more than four cups of coffee each day doubles the risk of hip fracture!."

Coffee can make you forgetful

This afternoon I had tea with my favourite neighbours, and mentioned the fine news about how alcohol sharpens your brain!. Knowing that I'm a fan of coffee as well as wine, they pointed me to this: A coffee can make you forgetful!. (Which might just mean that coffee drinkers need an extra glass of brain-boosting wine, hmmm!?) Anyway, here's the BBC article:

A cup of coffee each morning may wake you up, but a new study suggests caffeine might hinder your short-term recall of certain words!.

Caffeine made it harder for people to find a word that they already knew - the "tip-of-the-tongue" phenomenon!.

Valerie Lesk, of the International School for Advanced Studies in Italy, believes caffeine improves alertness by shutting down other brain pathways!.

This makes it harder to recall words, she says in Behavioural Psychology!.

Caffeine is known to excite the brain and increase alertness!.

Good luck to you!.

no it doesn't make you shorter,
but it can stop you're natural growing earlier!.

that's why it' bad for kids!.
if you're done growing, yerr fine!.
