    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.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    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.

    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...
