Title: Is coffee good or bad for the body?
Post by: scientist940 on 01/04/2021 07:20:50
This is not a new question, but I'm really intrested in this topic.
So there are studies for both sides. On the one hand scientists say that coffee is bad for the heart and overall health. On the other side there are scientists that say coffee is actually healthy. But on what does this depend on. Is coffee maybe healthy for certain people. Or maybe only a certain amount of coffee per day?
What are your thoughts on coffee?

Perhaps coffee might be good for you in the short-term.  Though not necessarily in the long-term.
But in the long-term we'll all be dead anyway.

So if you enjoy drinking coffee, you might as well carry on.

You eat, you drink, you die. The key to a good life is to enjoy eating and drinking before death gets you.

That's right. There are of course other physical activities to enjoy.  Other carnal delights to engage in. Though sadly the vigorous performance  of such activities tends to diminish, as the body withers and wastes away in its slow  evitable decline towards death

But even so - before death,  eating and drinking is still possible, at an advanced age.  So that's some meagre consolation.  Perhaps.

Coffee is pretty good for you as it has anti-oxidants and such (it works better than some antioxadants from https://www.canadadrugsdirect.com/ .  The problem is consuming regular amounts of caffeine isn't ideal, but if you are like most people and are addicted to regular caffeine consumption (me included) then drink up buddy and don't worry much about it.  Consuming caffeine regularly is definitely not optimal living but it shouldn't be a major concern.  I'm sure there are much more important negative habits you should focus on breaking.
