Has coffee effected any of you in a negative way concerning your health?  Especially you long time drinkers.  I LOVE coffee and drink quite a lot of it, but I'm a huge hypochondriac as well, lol.  Just curious if anyone here has health problems from coffee drinking.

No coffee has not affected me health wise, in fact I get no Ill effects from coffee at all. I believe the health benefits of coffee far out weigh any negative effects some people may suffer, but those badly affected could perhaps drink less or none at all.

I usually don't jump in on questions like this posted by newbies as I figure there will be a sales pitch coming up along the road, however I will say I have suffered severe acid reflux definitely contributed to excessive coffee consumption.  It is under control now due to less coffee intake, and an over the counter acid reducer.

Otherwise the benefits far outweigh the reflux issue.

In the last year, over 2 million people in the United States have died.

And I bet you that about 99% of them drank coffee . . .  

According to the study you quote, "However, a new study reveals that drinking large amounts of coffee may be bad for people under 55 years old."

So the key is to drink large amount of coffee AFTER you are 55 years old, well ... at least according to the article.

Heavy Coffee Consumption Linked to Early Death

Studies like these are worthless....Cups of coffee means what? Four venti brews from Starbucks? Four sugar laced caramel vanilla mocha lattes? Four americanos?

Also, it's a scientific fact that caffeine raises blood pressure...Too much of it (or anything for that matter) is going to have negative consequences for your body obviously.

I sure hope not.

And most of the time I know it hasn't.

I have a heart problem, and irregular heart beat and have since I was in my early 40s. The first cardiologist said "NO CAFFEINE". After headaches and withdrawals and feeling miserable, I saw the electrophysiologist (specialist in heart rhythms). He told me, (and this is as close to a direct quote as I can give) "All great people drink coffee, even me."

If you have heart problems, drinking a ton of coffee can cause problems, especially if you drink more than you are accustomed to drinking. However, in moderation, it's quite fine. When I can't sleep, I get up and drink a cup of something if I mentioned here would make people laugh at me (and nope, not *$)

I do know that some migraine sufferers need to avoid caffeine. I know that others caffeine helps mitigate the suffering.

So will coffee affect you? Only you will be able to know

 
The world needs more outstanding coffee.

do you game?:
