I like coffee and I used to drink at least 3 cups of coffee per day. But after reading the latest information on drinking coffee, I have decided that I will reduce it to one cup per day.I am putting here the recent information on coffee, so that you can also know about it. Caffeine acts as a potent diuretic.Consume too many caffeinated beverages, and you end up drinking yourself in to dehydration. But in moderate amounts, caffeine has only mild diuretic effects - much like water. Further please note that when dehydration takes place it is not only sodium but also pottasium that gets reduced and if pottasium is reduced it affects the functioning of heart resulting in heart diseases. So, kindly take this matter seriously and if you are taking too much of coffeine - please reduce it.

I don't think coffee is good for our heathy. I like water, just water. Usually I drink water with honey or lemon. When I must go to bed in midnight, I would drink a cup of coffee that caffeine with help me work.
