To Drink Or Not To Drink?

Coffee, that is. Here are ten benefits and 11 potential health risks associated with drinking coffee. But it's up to you to weigh how important or risky each finding is.
The key is quantity and quality. For those consuming moderate amounts of coffee (3-4 cups/day providing 300-400 mg/d of caffeine), there is little evidence of health risks and some evidence of health benefits. However, some people, including persons with hypertension, osteoporosis, heart disease, pregnant women, children, adolescents, and elderly may be more vulnerable to the adverse effects of coffee.

At least, coffee is far less toxic and more healthier than the sugar-laden drinks like soda.

Each item includes a link to the original research. Link -Thanks, Karen!

It is by caffeine that I set my mind in motion. It is by the product of the coffee bean that thoughts acquire speed, hands acquire shakes, shakes become a warning. It is by caffeine that I set my mind in motion.

It all depends on the size of one's "cup", afterall. I only have 2 cups worth, but each are 16oz. So maybe that is about a pot. Needless to say, I bring a thermos to work otherwise I'd be quite poor.
