I have always heard coffee was bad for you. Hold that thought!
Coffee reduces diabetes risk: 6 cups a day reduced risk 54% for men and 30% for women, but even one cup had some reduction.
Colon cancer: 2 cups a day reduce risk by 80%
Gallstones: 2 cups a day reduce risk 50%
Liver cirrhosis: 2 cups per day reduce risk by 80%
And there are studies showing Parkinson's disease can be reduced risk up to 80%
Coffee has more antioxidants than any other food or beverage in the American diet.
And now the other side of the coin:
Drinking too much coffee may cause heart trouble, as it may cause the arteries around the heart to harden. Just don't drink more than two cups a day, especially if you have high blood pressure and you'll be fine!
