Drinking coffee everyday

There seems to be mixed opinion on this online so I'm directing this question to fellow Interlanders. Do you think drinking a cup of coffee every morning is in any way harmful to health, short or long term? Some people believe so and seem to have switched to alternatives like green tea. I have tried green tea and find it hard to consume on a daily basis cos it's too bland. I have also read that regular coffee drinking might actually prevent some diseases but it could also increase your blood pressure?? I don't know what to believe anymore.

I don't think one cup a day of anything is bad for you. Unless it's a cup of antifreeze or something.

Everything in moderation.

(and no, I'm not just speaking as an employee of a coffee powerhouse. )

That's my opinion too! One cup a day shouldn't do anything I guess.

i don't think so zoots.. One or two cups can't really have that much of an effect on your health even if it's your entire life..

now 5 cups a day well.. i can't say on that.. they could drop dead any minute..

One or two cups per day of fresh brewed coffee is loaded with antioxidants and apparently significantly reduces your chances of getting Parkinsons. Ditch the sugar and drink up.

Green tea is good for you, too, but not as much fun.

Of course right now, I'm doing a cleanse and am in caffeine withdrawal with a screaming headache, so that's the downside. It is addictive.

I have 2 cups every morning, that I make at home. I can't do work or school without it. I also love my Starbucks lattes too.

Live for the moment, Zoots. Drink your coffee!



My drug of choice.

You're not drinking coffee to excess (unlike yours truly .) I'm sure it won't be a problem. Green tea is highly caffeinated, so a lot of the adverse effects you could experience with coffee are likely to occur with green tea as well. Green tea does have greater anti-oxidant qualities, though, so it is slightly better than coffee in that respect.

You can say that again...

I cannot work to my fullest potential without a high amount of caffeine coursing through me. Sad, but true.

I used to drink a lot of soda, and, about three years ago quit caffeine cold turkey. The first month was not easy at all. Headaches galore, falling asleep super early, etc. Eventually I adjusted, of course, and have not had a drop of it since, except for what you might take in with some chocolate or aspirin, etc.

yeah, i don't think one cup per day would do any harm. i never drink coffee though and only have a soda maybe once per month or two. so yeah, i try to avoid caffeine as much as possible.

Ha! That is impossible for me. I need at least 1 tsp. of sugar for a 12 oz. cup of coffee. So recently I have switched to Sweet n Low or one of those artificial sweeteners.


offtopic: Khan, your sigs are hilarious!

3-4 servings of coffee a day for me. I'll be sure to let you know if it kills me
