    I used to drink coffee, since I was in college in order to tolerate sleepy nights. In effect, I am now experiencing palpitations. I know it is not good to drink coffee everyday. However, is coffee healthy or not?

    I thought it was common knowledge that it's unhealthy.

    I saw some studies that coffee is actually healthy, for whatever reason doc's came up with :)
    They claim that it becomes unhealthy after 5 cups a day (I think it's still too much) But if you drink 1-2 you will be perfectly fine.

    It sounds interesting. My sister also told me that coffee is good because it contains anti-oxidant. There are lots of coffee brands in the market. Do you have any other suggestions on how to choose the best type of coffee? Thanks.

    One year it's healthy, next it isn't. It contains caffeine which is a stimulant, I can't see how this can be healthy due to it's raise in BP and heart rate.

    The rare time I do drink coffee I will usually have atleast 3 cups in one sitting.

    I live on the bean. It's like eggs, though. One day they tell you it's good for you, the next it isn't.

    Coffee is healthy is most regards, meaning in moderation (less than 5 as previously posted). The anti-oxidants in a zero calorie beverage (provided you don't put half cup of sugar in each cup) is good for everything except for your teeth and breath. Studies show that a cup of coffee before a workout will drastically decrease your fatigue during that workout, obviously caffeine induced :)

    Personally, I can't get enough coffee....

    I once read in the book that coffee is good for the health because it contains ingredients good for the body. I am just thinking why i cannot see the good result of the coffee in some of my friends. What i am sure about that is coffee is good for the stomach every morning.

    It's healthy to drink coffee but once a day is enough. drinking much glass a day would be bad for you. it makes you addicted to it. we know it has caffeine in it.

    Anything in excess is bad for you. Moderation is key.

    Yeah....it's pretty unhealthy and is addicting. Caffeine headaches are the worst when you need them to go away.

    of course its bloody healthy!
    my caffeine addiction, combined with my nicotine addiction helps keep me trim and taught!
    both are appetite suppressants. both stain your teeth, and give you rotten headaches.
    however without them both I wouldnt be able to keep up my 20hr up 4 hr down routine, that I need to physically fit in both work and family commitments. hahaha. all jokes aside...actually its now 11pm, I might have one now!

    coffee is bad if you will be drinking like 5 cups a day but you will just take 1 cup, I think it would be fine since it is anti-oxidant.
    Anything which is taken too much is not good for us..

    It's not known for it's vitamin content.... it's known for it's caffeine content.

    I'm unemployed and have to chase after a 3 year old and a two year old - not to mention get a 5 year old back and forth from first grade. I just know I'm about worthless without it good for me or not.
