    Thank you, Dermapix. That was good for a chuckle.

    Derpamix, coffee most definitely DOES have health benefits. But as I understand it, these benefits are subject to a maximum effective dosage. I'm not sure this dosage has been correctly identified yet, but as I've read, after a certain point, the benefits of additional cups of coffee seem to taper off. As though your body is able to adapt to the substances in coffee and their benefits decrease.

    But I admit to being no expert and if it seems to work for you, my hats off to ya!

    How so? Coffee is one of the most concentrated sources of magnesium, and niacin. Those who drink 5+ cups of coffee a day are shown to have the least alzheimer's, liver disease, parkinson's, thyroid issues, etc

    The effects certainly don't taper off, though it would probably be quite hard to drink as much coffee as I do for most people. Drinking coffee with food helps a lot with the jitters though, as does adding lots of milk due to the fact coffee depletes glycogen.

    Another thing about coffee, is the iron chelation. I drink it with every meal that is rich in iron like all muscle meats, liver, oysters, so on

    Not every day, no. I have at least 5-10 though. I try to drink as much of it as possible, but unfortunately I'm not always around a coffee pot.

    Ray Peat was drinking 50 cups of a coffee a day when he wasn't able to get thyroid supplements

    5-10 seems normal enough. 30-50 seems like entirely to much fluids. 30 cups at 6oz is 1.4 gallons.

    My diet is mostly fluid based anyway. I get the majority of my daily calories from raw milk and orange juice.

    Tea has much less caffeine and still serves as a potent iron chelator in the same manner that coffee does. So coffee isn't necessary for that effect.

    Tea has also been shown to have beneficial effects in delaying the onset of and helping prevent both Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. Also, I read this about a month or so ago about the impact of green tea on liver disease:

    http://today.uconn.edu/blog/2009/02/...liver-disease/

    I've recently read though, that both coffee and tea should be avoided when one has candida, to get back to the opening post's topic.
