So what do you say? some experts claim it is a drug that you can be addict to it and you don't spouse to drink it more than once in a day.. Other experts claim that drinking coffee is very healthy and that you should drink it at least once in a day.. I don't know what to think.. I don't drink a lot of coffee, i usually like to drink a small cup of black coffee when i need a boost of energy

I think I am hooked on the Dunkin Donuts vanilla coolatta. Everytime I go somewhere I want one. Oh well I don't drink or smoke so I guess a coolatta is ok. I always thought regular coffee was ok as long as you don't overdue it

I probably drink too much coffee, but I drink it for the energy, but also heard it is good for preventing and/or controlling diabetes. This disease runs in my family, so I feel I am doing something to keep me a little healthier...LOL

I may not have as much energy, but I am pretty hyper anyways, the coffee just gives me that extra boost I need with going to school and taking care of my family, including two very active dogs..I use to take one day a week and not drink any coffee and the worse part was the headaches. I should go back to doing that though, I am sure it was healthier..

I like to drink coffee. I have also heard that it can be good for you but if you drink it in excess, then it could possibly be bad for you but that goes with just about everything anymore.

Actually every items that we eat or drink has merits and demerits. In most cases it depends on the individual. By the way, i drink tea more than coffee. Have a nice day.

I have heard of so many contradictory studies that it is bad today then good tomorrow. I am not sure how to react to them outside of saying that I am one to simply like it and must have it at least each and every morning. I have had a few during the day and have never been known to be kept up at night of lack of sleep because of it. As for the studies I am not sure how to feel about it because in the meantime I have to have it. lol

It is good to hear that both of you drink a lot of coffee for so long time and that you feel great, It is some times stronger than all researches

I will drink 1 or 2 16oz mugs a day. Sometimes i skip it. I have also heard that caffen can be addictive. Caffen is in other drinks too. Tea, chocolate, soda pop especially mountian dew. If you take in huge amounts and then skip a day and you get headaches that is a withdrawal symptom. Its recommended that you wean yourself down to a more acceptable amount. Too much of anythng isnt good for anyone. Caffee is also said to have benifical effects too.

As in all cases concerning food and drink I think the best is to be moderate. A cup of coffee or even two a day is not too much. I mean what is too much is bad for health. On the other hand, what was considered once bad for health may be considered good after several years! Surprise! In case of coffee I heard it is good for eliminating toxins. So I drink a cup of coffee in the morning but not only because of that, I like coffee. I also drink when I ate a lot to help digestion.

COffee is supposed to be good for our health. It's the same for anything else, too much of a good thing can have reverse effects. It applies to vitamins, the kind of food we are eating too. Don't worry about drinking coffee, as long as u are drinking a reasonable amount of it, it will be fine. 2-3 cups a day should not pose too much of a problem unless one is drinking it like drinking water.

I have always believe and will always believe that coffee is unhealthy for as long as it contain caffeine. Caffeine is an addictive substance. So anything that is addictive is not healthy. This is the reason why I don't drink coffee.

Only good things. Because that's all I've heard about coffee. The only bad things I've heard about coffee are rumors that could be applied to anything. Addiction---that is simply 'the fact that your body gets accustomed to the things you normally do to it.' Are the things bad for you? not necessarily. take "water"---you can get 'addicted to it,' but you can NEVER have too much of it (provided that getting it doesn't keep you from getting everything else you need ) I've also heard good things about the fruit that coffee-'beans' (really 'seeds,' I think) come from.

Hi yoniarnon: I think both are truth statements. Almost every food, every meal is good if you take it appropietly. Just don't abuse. I like to drink coffe. It helps me to be concentrated on my day but caffeine is very addictive and it has bad consequences for your healt. The secret is not to exaggerate. I usually drink a cup of coffe but never more than twice. ALVARO

I've heard different things as well. I know that I drink coffee every day and if for some reason I don't, I get caffine headaches. Anything that gives you withdrawals probably isn't too good for you.

Coffee...it makes you alert and awake.. and it is also healthy, because it is an anti oxidants that remove bad cells inside your body.. I guess so.. base on what I've heard.

I don't think I'll like coffee because it contains caffeine that can easily make me hard to go to sleep.Before bed I don't drink any tea that contains caffeine,either for the same reason.

Every coin has its two sides.Coffee is no exception.If you take full advantage of it,it will takes a role as health drinks which will play a key role in our daily life,but if it is used inappropriately,there will be no difference between it and poison!

I love coffee! Right now I'm enjoying a cup of Sumatra. It is a wonderful dark coffee that smells earthy and has a smoky, slightly sweet taste. You may not like coffee because you haven't tried all the wonderful varieties. The large commercial brands like Folgers use inferior coffee beans and taste like swill. To really enjoy coffee you should get some from Sumatra, Costa Rica or Brazil. You can read about the different coffees and how they taste at http://www.coffeereview.com/ which is NOT A REFERRAL link but an educational one. Coffee grown in Columbia is quite different from that grown in Ethiopia and so on. They all have their unique flavors and different bodies. But if you just drink what is on your store shelf, the kind everyone buys, you'll be disappointed.

i don't drink coffee usually. But I can understand what situation you are in now. Nowadays we can not trust experts much.what they say are misleading. For the same matter, some claim it good and others claim it bad. So in my opinion, forget what experts say, just take what you like and what you feel shall be good. If you really like coffee, then just take it and enjoy it:)
