Is drinking too much coffee is bad to our body? the said coffee is good to our body because of antioxidant but my mom always say to me that drinking too much coffee is bad also, for me coffee is a part of my everyday life. My day is not complete if i don't drink coffee. Do you think drinking too much coffee is bad also?

hey ezzrssi... drinking one cup of coffee a day is what i call a small addition, you'd better be careful! I believe that too much of anything is not good for anyone but a little bit of everything will keep you healthy.

I am more on Green Tea than coffee. I don't like the after taste of coffee and it felt like my stomach is turning upside down if I drink coffee. Coffee is really addicted because it contains a very high caffeine which is a stimulant and addictive, just like Coke or Pepsi.

good question. Not sure about the coffee being an antioxidant, but I recently saw a show in which a doctor was saying the drinking coffee if you don't have diabetes helps prevent it, but if you have diabetes you should stay away from coffee. I can remember if it raises or lowers the blood sugar though. He also said that unless you go overboard, no studies have proven any bad side affects... host this helps some :)
