I work in hospital and coffee is always around me.

Some coffee won't harm - too much coffee might lead to loss of calcium and finally to osteoporosis.

And: welcome to VB!


I guess you're already right into it.

Ah, I was just reading an article on how coffee has loads of antioxidants; a cup of joe has more than a cup of blueberries, it claimed.

I've always drunk coffee for the yum factor, but now, I think... I'll claim a health reason as well.

Interstingly decaf coffee increses the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis in femals but normal coffee doesn't! Nobody has come up with a reason for this fact.

Some (most, actually) decaf coffee is decaffeinated using formaldehyde- i wonder if that has anything to do with the arthritis thingy??

On a different note..... I loooooove coffee. I am a coffee addict, and I fully admit it!! I've tried to give up a few times, but end up falling asleep mid morning
so I've decided to stop fighting it and just enjoy coffee. mmm coffee.

I've got a tongue covered in mouth ulcers at the minute tho, so I've only had one cup today (so far)!!

I was under the impression that most decaf these days uses the water method?

I am hooked on caffeine. I usually have a couple mugs (sometimes three) of coffee, a mug of tea, and some dark chocolate. I enjoy tea and coffee only without sugar, which people think is quite unusual for my age. I usually have little or no caffeine during the weekend since I get to sleep in. If I don't have any caffeine on a weekday, I get anxious, worry about the tiniest things, tremble a bit, have a strange feeling in my head (hard to describe- almost like this "pressure", or as if it is about to pop), and my eyes feel heavy and are very watery. Although the description may sound severe, the withdrawal symptoms are mild and tolerable. I plan to use more chocolate to wake me up-chocolate contains theobromine, which has a longer lasted, smoother effect than that of caffeine does not cause withdrawal symptoms.

About coffee causing osteoporosis, I heard somewhere on Notmilk that the calcium loss resulting from a cup of coffee in a vegan is 2mg. In an omni eating a hamburger, the burger results in a 28mg loss of calcium. (I couldn't find the article that said that, and don't remember the numbers precisley, but I am 100% sure that it said coffee calcium loss< burger calcium loss). So coffee is not very bad for bones, at least compared to meat.

Coffee is not so good that it is just burn your fat.And its only useful for those who want to loss their body fat.Its not quite well to use frequently because it has the side effects on your health.Its make our body bones weak because its remove the calcium from body and it is not make humans into sleep.

My whole family drinks loads of coffee. I probably drink somewhere around 4-5 cups a day and some days its more than that and others less. I grind my own coffee. I grind mine to a very fine ground...almost like espresso. I also like a full bodied coffee like an arabica type coffee.
