Guilt-free Coffee Love.

I recently read that drinking around two mugs of coffee a day is a preventative for a number of illnesses, including parkinsons disease.

This makes my daily routine of a morning coffee & mid-afternoon Costa/Starbucks/Caffe Nero latte taste all the better

Thanks for that :)<br />
I don't drink more than two cups a day & stay away from other caffeinated drinks, so hopefully I'm just exposing myself to some good benefits!

Coffee is great for you but like all things to much is bad for you 3-4 cups a day is good. This is an article i picked up <br />
Many studies have been performed on the relationship between coffee consumption and many medical conditions. Most studies are contradictory as to whether coffee has any specific health benefits, and results are similarly conflicting with respect to negative effects of coffee consumption.[29] Studies have suggested that the consumption of coffee is beneficial to health in some ways. Coffee appears to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, heart disease, diabetes mellitus type 2, cirrhosis of the liver,[30], and gout. Some health effects are due to the caffeine content of coffee, as the benefits are only observed in those who drink caffeinated coffee, while others appear to be due to other components of the coffee.[31] Coffee contains antioxidants, which prevent free radicals from causing cell damage.[32]<br />

Coffee has negative health effects associated with it, most of them due to its caffeine content. There exists research to suggest that drinking caffeinated coffee can cause a temporary increase in the stiffening of arterial walls.[33] Excess coffee consumption may lead to a magnesium deficiency or hypomagnesemia
