Caffeine is a stimulant. Many people find that it makes them jittery. It can also contribute to dehydration if the person is drinking it in place of water when it's hot outside. Although I wouldn't quite say it's dangerous or bad for your health, it's also not particularly nutritious either.

Maybe it's nutritious in the loosest sense of the word. If you take it with milk or cream, you're getting a tiny % of your daily calcium requirements. If you take it with sugar, you're getting some calories- empty calories but calories none the less. To the best of my knowledge there aren't any needed vitamins or minerals in coffee itself, and it is not "fortified" with anything, so I would say it's not particularly nutritious.

[i]Hello excellenece7, How are you today? You know anything too much is really harmful. Why do we drink coffee? It is because we want to stay awake. Our part of the brain that controls the sleeping center are harmed by coffee that we will have an irregular circadian rhythm. Regular sleeping habit will be disorganized. Coffee is god because it makes us smarter according to studies because it makes us alert but not all the time. Sooner or later the more we drink coffee too, we will become nervous people. LOL I do love to drink coffee and I drink 5 to 8 cups in a day. Though literally I am still alive, I can't start and end a day without even smiling the aroma of coffee. It is my water. It is bad but I must drink at least one cup or else I am useless the whole day. My dependency has done no good. Happy posting and take care[/i]

Hi leateagee, am fine dear..hope you doing well too...well you communicated really good information dear. I think you must control your dependency on coffee else the dependency will control you. 8 cups are really too much dear. Well good luck for the control. Happy posting and thanks for sharing such a nice post my dear friend.

Most definitely! A few cups a day can be of benefit apparently but considering the high concentrations of caffeine and the fact that caffeine is a stimulant; the stress put on the body if you drink too much caffeine cannot be good! I am not sure of the exact side effects but hypersensitivity, hyperactivity and erratic heartbeat you would think would be a few..... If you are a lover of hot drinks I suggest you get stuck into tea once you have had your standard couple of cups of coffee a day!

Yes drinking too much of coffee is not good for health , I heard that if you drink lot of coffee in future you might to face heart problems. Try to drink only once or twice per day and if you do so that will not harm you as well.

Hi excellence7, i heard before there will be side effect if drink much coffee. However, it's still depends on the body ability to take it. From some survey done by the doctors, it is acceptable for people to take maximum 2 cups of coffee everyday. I also read a news about someone pass away before of taken too much coffee in a day. Guess how much? Is 8 cups of coffee!!!

My cardiologist said not to have more than 2 cups per day. But I already have a heart condition. I also know coffee bothers my stomach (too much acid). So yeah it can cause problems for your health if you drink too much of it.

Hello,Excellence! Too much of any thing is always bad.If you drink too much coffee daily you are supposed to suffer from hyper-acidity and indigestion.Limit it to just three cups.two to three cups of coffee can cut the risk of dying from heart diseases by 31% as revealed by a study.coffee can also lower the risk of colon cancer.thanx.
