Dr. Kate Allen, Executive Director of Science and Public Affairs at World Cancer Research Fund International, says “both coffee and coffee extracts have also been shown to reduce the expression of genes involved in inflammation, and the effects appear to be most pronounced in the liver. Specifically, the study determined that the risk of developing liver cancer might be reduced by approximately 14% if individuals consume one cup of coffee per day.”

Then there is this: (I looked it up to back up the reason for the post)

Four years ago Harvard put out study results about caffeine and its effect on depression. The research found the risk of depression to be 20% lower among women who drank four or more cups of caffeinated coffee than those who drank little or none.

I stopped drinking coffee four years ago when the little ticker started beating out of sync. My doctor thought it would make it worse.

Maybe I was just drinking crappy coffee? I mean, I stopped caffeine and I still have to take my Flecainide. I’m going to bring it up on my visit next week.

    Good luck! I love, love love my coffee, used to have acid reflux from drinking too much of it, cut back, took the purple pill for a few months, got rid of the acid reflux (and purple pill) and am back in the saddle drinking as much as I want a day. There has got to be a way, you can sneak at least a little bit back into your routine. Keep me posted! DM

  2. Coffee is the one thing I will never give up. From everything I’ve read and heard it is full of benifits and has almost no downside. Love my morning coffee.

  3. Coffee really made my PTSD worse. I feel great since I quit and am happy that I don’t have to make and drink it all day to stay awake. I miss the smell, though, and the taste!
