6 cups of coffee today...0 tomorrow?
The latest and greatest is that you can (should?) have 6 cups of coffee a day to cut down your risk for heart disease! Wow! And it reduces stress too (at least for now).
The real question is - what's the next study going to say? Tea and coffee change your mental makeup? Every few months, it seems like you get a polarized reading of the benefits or dangers of drinking tea or coffee. Sometimes it adds stress to your life, sometimes it kills off calcium in your bones, sometimes it dehydrates - all I can say is that I need a cup of tea (prefer that to coffee in the AM) to wake up.
The good news right now is that, given the latest, a lot of people in Silicon Valley will be ramping up their coffee intake! After all, it is the most popular drug in the world! ...and still legal!
