Is Eating Coffee Grounds Bad for You?

Eating coffee grounds is not bad for an individual's health, according to Sandeep Godiyal for Natural News. In fact, coffee grounds are very high in antioxidants and nutrients, even when they are used to make coffee.

Coffee grounds have long been used as fertilizer for plants and gardens. Human beings benefit from the consumption of coffee grounds as well, as studies show coffee is good for individuals suffering from Alzheimer's, kidney cancer, liver cancer and Parkinson's disease, notes Godiyal. Further, skin and hair benefit from coffee grounds. A scrub made from brown sugar and coffee grounds is beneficial for both.
