Or if your mother likes to wash your mouth out with soap and water, tell her to use the decaffeinated.

The latest studies I have read indicate coffee is good stuff. One nutritionist I read states it is a "super food". The problem with coffee and/or caffeine is that it is easily abused.

Two studies:
1) whatever medical category you are, alcoholic, tea totaling Catholic, mother of 4, etc. coffee makes your liver numbers better. So a coffee drinking alcoholic has better liver function than a non coffee drinking alcoholic.
2) Stress on kidneys --> kidney burn out. It is true that coffee can elevate your blood pressure, and that can lead to excess stress on kidneys resulting in premature burn out. But a 16 oz coffee daily has been shown to have negligible effects on kidney health. So if you use caffeinated soap in the shower, a 20 oz latte at breakfast, a 16 oz with lunch, and a coca-cola with dinner, yeah, you're kidneys will be in trouble.

Bottom line : coffee in moderation is excellent! The over 500 carcinogens have no effects. Your liver numbers will be better! You may want to stay hydrated as coffee increases urination. But coffee? Nectar of the Godz!!!


Thank goodness, my last remaining addiction is good for me! :) I love strong, black coffee (dark roast, which is apparently healthier as less acidic than lighter roasts!)
But I shall draw the line at caffeinated soap, it must taste awful ! :idea: haha!

Actually a more recent study discovered that this above was only true for coffee "beginners". In contrast, habitual coffee drinkers have no increased urination for up to 5 cups of coffee per day - possibly a consequence of their bodies adapting.

I have been drinking coffee for decades and it still makes me pee. Never heard that before.

Well it makes you pee anyway because coffee is 99+% water. But if you compare with drinking that much clean water, statistically there was no difference in urine output between the two, for habitual coffee drinkers. Some individual experiences would be the exception.
