People say that tea is preferable to coffee. is it true. Coffee has some toxic element in it and tea does not have that. I do not understand why coffee is not good for health. I still take more than 5 cups of coffee a day.

Coffee isn't good to drink more than 1-2 cups a day due to caffeine, unless you get Decaf that is. Caffeine is highly known to shrink vessels which can cause to headaches and further disorders if not careful. Think about it, if you body is hyped up on caffeine and heart racing (blood pumping faster) when vessels shrink that is more chance of medical issues like hypertension (High Blood Pressure) or even heart attacks in really poor health. If your hygene oriented then coffee is bad because it can and will stain your teeth very badly. Hope this answers your question. =)
