It seems nobody really knows how coffee affects long term health. Is it good for you or is it bad for you. Will it cause you to go blind or raise our blood pressure.
Maybe it will cause your hair to grow or wrinkle your skin. Who knows?
Coffee Affects Long Term Health
Whether it does or not, I find this excerpt from CNN Health interesting. Pay close attention to the last sentence and drink up.
Study: Heavy coffee drinking in people under 55 linked to early death
When you make coffee with breakfast, or grab a to-go cup at a cafe before work, or raid your office’s break room for a cup in the afternoon, you’re probably not thinking about how scientists are studying it.
So we’ll just tell you: Many studies have looked at the health effects of coffee, even though measuring the potential harms and benefits is not as easy as chugging a shot of espresso. Since a whole range of lifestyle and genetic factors influence a person’s physical well-being, it’s hard to know exactly if, or how, or to what extent, coffee would be good or bad for anyone’s long term health.
There you have it. Nobody really knows. What do you think?
