More studies that show Coffee is Good for you

    According to an article Coffee's Mysterious Benefits Mount from Yahoo news, it seems that coffee has lot more that we expected. If you're a constant regular coffee drinker that needs at least 2~3 cups of coffee per day, then you should check out the article. Well, I'm not encouraging you to drink more coffee but just like to share this article with you so that you can enjoy your favorite coffee comfortably. First of all you have a 39% decreased risk of head and neck cancer. Coffee can help to prevent the neural degeneration associated with brain disorders and aging. Coffee also reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and lower the risk of stroke. As far as most studies and research shown, drinking coffee might just help prevent some diseases.

    Well, let's just say nothing is perfect. When there is a good side, there is a bad side. We have to know the bad side of drinking coffee so that we can manage it. The one thing that we all worries about drinking too much coffee is the amount of caffeine consume. Having too much caffeine can lead to headaches, jitters and a racing heartbeat. So no matter how much we love our coffee, it's wise to control between 2~3 cups per day.

P/S: I prefer to have a cup of coffee in the morning during breakfast. If the kick is not enough, I might have another cup after lunch and that's it. I won't try to get another cup of coffee after sun down. That's my way of having my cup of favorite coffee without over dose.

Kumowai, Nice article about coffee being good for one. It seems like one day it's good for you then the next day caffeine is not good for you. I think anything in moderation would really work. But it is comforting to know that it can help with some of the disease's that you mentioned. Sorry I haven't been around lately, but I just read some of your past post which I've found very interesting,especially the post about Green Tea when blogging and the benefits of GreenTea. I am a tea drinker myself but lately have turned into drinking CHAI, which I must admit I'm addicted to.
Great posts, I'll be back for sure. Here's to a little caffeine in the am!
