    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.
