        Yep, coffee is well documented to be healthy for most people, but as always there are certain exceptions...

          And it tastes awesome! I like a nice dark roast organic, ground for my stove top espresso pot. One mug of that in the AM jump starts everything. It's like starting the day with a little gift.

            Back in Medical School in 1977 (ahem) an article came out showing a statistical association between coffee drinking and pancreatic cancer of all things. Since most of my fellow docs drink coffee, this caused an immediate uproar and it did not take long to discredit the study. At that time I did not drink the stuff so I had no dog in the hunt. Have not seen anything since that indicts coffee as bad for you.

              I find coffee makes me hungry. Does this mean I should stop or quit drinking cream in it?

                There is plenty of research out there suggesting coffee may not be so great. No one ever talks about the 200 something acids in it that inhibit absorption of certain nutrients or that it is directly tied to depression in some. Im not saying it cant be healthy but this particular issue is the most hypocritical thing i find about this community...the research you read saying its great for you is the same crap that says grains are too. Once again im not saying it is or isnt, but to come out and say its without a doubt healthy is a fallacy. I know several people who claim quitting caffeine cured them of their depression and they were only having 2 cups of coffee a day.

                  I couldn't agree with you more. But people get very defensive about their addictions.

                    Actually now that im thinking about it, caffeine is a natural pesticide and lethal to many animals even in relatively small doses..could be similar to defense mechanisms of grains. I sure know grok wasnt chillin at his local starbucks every morning

                      I am under strict orders from my neurologist to be caffeine free due to the fact that it can cause seizures in someone whose brain is pre-disposed to seizures. So a person with a healthy brain says, "Well, that doesn't apply to me." Maybe not directly but if coffee can give a sensitive brain seizures, it stands to reason that it is probably not doing good things for other brains either.

                        The research that says it's great for you isn't as valid as the research that says it isn't great for you? lol...

                        You mean research like this?

                        "17. Caffeine causes stress on the body. Stress is a factor in most diseases."

                        "18. Caffeine lowers your stress threshold. In other words, coffee drinkers handle stress less effectively."

                        "27. Caffeine causes depression and anxiety, and can lead to panic attacks."

                        "26. Coffee plays a role in malnutrition. Caffeine causes an increased loss of thiamin and other B vitamins, calcium, minerals, sodium, chloride, potassium, magnesium, and zinc. "

                        "29. Coffee makes you crazy!"

                        Yeah, awesome, this is all over the internet too. Or the one government test that linked caffeine to issues with women during pregnancy?

                        Caffeine inhibits brain phospholipase, making it neuroprotective on a wide scale.

                        Regulatory functions of phospholipase A2. [Crit Rev Immunol. 1997] - PubMed - NCBI

                        Not to mention it inhibits iron, lowers serotonin, and per calorie has a great range of nutrients.

                        B-b-but caffeine gives you a boost therefore it must be bad that's not natural...

                          Also, maybe reaching, but look up per capita for nations and coffee consumption along with health, happiness, and well-being. The US is way down there, and we're one of the most unhealthy nations in the world. Not even my coffee consumption and happiness can bring that up.

                            Derpamix..I didnt at all claim that one side or the other was right, i said im not saying either way but its bs to not look at both sides. I was just stating some examples. You were viewing my comments through your own preconception...and im guessing since you are here that you value the research that shows grains are bad over the stuff that says its good, so your first comment is interesting...at the end of your post i couldnt tell what side you were on lol. And the research that says coffee is great sells product, so idk the answer, but caffeine is a pretty powerful drug, go off it for a month and see how different you feel, good or bad.

                              I did. Stopped all caffeine for 2 months. I didn't notice anything either way, except less clarity of mind, and less energy in the morning. Was also slightly less motivated in the morning.
