I drink 6 cups of coffee a day and

I don't think it's that bad. Better than drinking alcohol. Is there really any proof out there that caffeine is bad for you?

I assume your coffee is caffeinated. There are several articles about caffeine and its effects on the body. Here is one about hydration and bone loss. There is another one about the general effects (short and long term) which you might find interesting. I'll include it in the next message.

good for you!

More and more research is pointing towards the BENEFITS of regular coffee. High in anti-oxidants, may prevent development of Type 2 (adult onset) diabetes, increases energy and alertness, among other things.
Some myths: it won't dehydrate you. It has a mild diuretic effect, but you still have a net gain of fluid (for coffee, like any drink, is primarily water).
For MOST people it will not cause cardiac arrythmias (alcohol is worse for that)

So, enjoy your coffee, as I do, as long as it's not laden with cream and sugar!
Cheers! Deb

I say watch how you feel....caffiene affects each of us differently. I recently increased my coffee intake from 4 -8 cups ( I love the taste of coffee!) a day and I noticed that my chest hurt, my hands were shaking and I was having trouble sleeping. I started to feel really bad......I cut my coffee back to my usual level and feel much better.

i drink at least 3 cups of coffee a day and most of the time i feel fine/great. . . but i do notice that if i have too much caffine early in the morning i feel nauseus or if i have more caffine than normal in a short period of time i get anxiety/shaky.

i agree with the posters who say listen to your body . . .only you know really what is okay for you.

so much research the last couple of years tells us things are good for us and then the next study shows it's bad for us and vice versa . . .i'm not listening to most of these studies anymore . . .anything and everything in moderation is key!!
