    Coffee vs health

    I began to like to drink coffee but at the same I am a little concern also of my health. Is it drinking too much coffee affect health? How to maintain my health at the same time I can enjoy coffee? Maybe certain coffee is more healthier to drink.

    Coffee as a beverage has been around a very long time. Over the centuries it has been marketed as being excellent for curing a number of ailments (from impotence to influenza!) and has also been banned for being a beverage that incited violence, revolution and caused everything from heart disease and strokes to blindess and (surprise) impotence! Anyway there are numerous modern studies both supporting the virtues of drinking coffee and those studies saying it causes health problems.

    I guess the best thing to do, if you are concerned, is to drink coffee in moderation. Several cups a day certainly should be safe. I know some of the guys that post here drink...well...a good many shots more than that! Also you could look at sticking to arabicas (as I outlined in my PM). A darker roasted arabica certainly has less caffiene content than the robustas that are pretty prominant in small coffee warungs or sold in the markets in places like KL.

    Yes, drinking too much coffee can affect on your health. Drinking more than 6 or 7 cups a day might cause “caffeinism” with symptoms such as anxiety or agitation. Coffee containing caffeine can cause insomnia, nervousness and restlessness, stomach upset, nausea and vomiting, increased heart and breathing rate, and many other side effects. Caffeine known to have properties similar to oral ED drugs such as Kamagra, according to Dr. Run Wang. It triggers some effects that cause the blood vessels in your penile organ to relax, increasing blood flow and causing a harder erection.

    Hello.

    Yes, coffee can affect health especially when you have high acid level. It is always better to consume everything in moderation because too much of anything can affect us negatively.

    Since cancer cells thrive in acidity and coffee is a little bit acid, try some alkaline foods to balance coffee drinking should be a good idea.

    from AMERICAN INSTITUTE FOR CANCER RESEARCH :

    The Claim: Acidic foods can alter the body’s pH balance and promote cancer.

    The Research: While these findings are accurate, they apply only to cells in an isolated lab setting. Altering the cell environment of the human body to create a less-acidic, less-cancer-friendly environment is virtually impossible.

    What to Do: What you eat can have a profound affect on your cancer risk, but the acidity or alkalinity of foods is not important. Instead, focus on making dietary choices that can truly affect your risk: Eat a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans; Limit consumption of red and processed meats

    "Eat a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans": they are alkaline!
    "Limit consumption of red and processed meats": they are acid!

    This is like watching people slapping their own faces!

    Whatever people or any other known institutes say, this is my take about coffee vs health.

    we live once. then, no one knows how and when we will go.
    there are people who smoked cigarettes for their entire lives and lived to 100.
    and there are people (like my father) who died from Liver cancer at 59 without drinking a drop of alcohol in his life time. but he smoked, but rather than dying from lung cancer, he died from liver cancer.

    it does not matter when you go or how you go.
    just enjoy your life to the fullest and eat & drink in moderation and exercise everyday.
    and then, whatever happens to you is not up to you. Nor it is up to coffee or alkaline or anything else.

    And as for me, if it weren't for the coffee, I wouldn't have started my second mission in life and I have measured out my life with what kind of coffee I can drink and how much I can really enjoy.

    Using longevity to justify a lifestyle is a wrong argument because there is noway you would know how much longer he/she might have lived with another lifestyle. Enjoying life may also have completely different meanings to different people. It's hard to say people died in their 50s didn't enjoy their lives.
