    coffee/health problems

    after about 12/13 years i finally developed a stomach ulcer/gastritis/and colitis after consuming strong cups of black coffee each morning without drinking milk afterwards! i loved to drink a strong ass cup of black coffee especially of the folgers brand! my favorite was not instant coffee but instead ground roast instead. my mother always told me to mix coffee with milk so like that it wouldnt be that strong on my stomach! i had a colonoscopy and endoscopy done and it revealed an ulcer and the other stuff. has a strong ass cup of black ground roast coffee alone with no milk been known to ultimately cause ulcers and the other stuff that i have not only in my case but a lot of other people? if so, how? if not, why? dont get me wrong but i just fell in love with starting my day with a strong ass cup of coffee black with no milk especially of the folgers brand! im not trying to badmouth coffee but on the contrary say its a wonderful beverage but lots of people have complained that it irritates their stomach and causes other gastrointestinal problems, would all of this be true? how can someone who doesnt have ulcers and the other stuff that i have start drinking a strong cup of coffee every morning and not develop these symptoms? why does coffee get a bad rap for allegedly causing this stuff to develop in the stomach after years of drinking it then by some people? if someone who doesnt have ulcers and the other stuff that i have start drinking a strong ass cup of cold brew coffee accompanied later with a cold glass of milk, do they still face the chance of ulcers and the other stuff that i have but later on in life like 15 or 20 years down the road??????? can a coffee lover/expert please share their opinion with me on this controversial subject. thank you.

    Not everyone is same. sometimes you get ulcers in few years and some never.

    for me, I do not like "strong ass black coffee". I rather have light flavorful specialty coffee few times a day. Probably caffeine wise, my style of coffee should have more caffeine than "Strong ass black coffee" (lighter roast has more caffeine than darker roast).
    Also, on the other hand, I am not so certain that "espresso type" black and strong coffee really cause ulcers or any related stomach problems..

    if anyone has some good answers, please let us know.
    thanks

    By the way, just wondering about your user name "lunfardi".
    I do not know what Lunfardi means, but I know what Lunfardo means. Lunfardo means "slang" in Spanish which is being used in Buenos Aires and Montevideo.
    Just wondering whether you are from any of these two countries.... because Argentina and Uruguay are two of my favorite countries in the world.

    Hey Lunfardi,

    Sorry to hear about your issue!! It's funny you bring this up though because the WHO just removed coffee from it's list of carcinogens. There were studies that linked coffee to bowel cancer but new studies show it was hard to prove links.

    I know personally I get stomach discomfort if I drink too much coffee, moderation is key right? I recommend staying on the milker side to keep it mild OR if you are lactose intolerant try almond or soy - which are much better for digestion than regular dairy.

    If you're interested I actually just wrote a blog post on the health benefits of coffee so feel free to check it out.

    You're probably not eating enough. Coffee has proven to be a healthy option but you might wanna try this thing they call 'moderation'.

    I heard that over addiction to coffee may cause health issues. Is it true? I am little bothered because I am addicted to it.
