    I drink two cups of coffee in the morning and one in the afternoon, followed by a large mug of green tea in the afternoon everyday. I do that because I enjoy drinking these two beverages. If they are beneficial to my health that is a bonus.

    Summary:
    Risk of death from any cause was 63% less in individuals drinking 4 cups or more of green tea, plus 2 or more cups of coffee per day according to a study published tracking 4900 participants in Japan.

    So do diet colas and beer count? Asking for a stupid friend!

    Make mine a black coffee, and put the tea in the harbor where it belongs.

    Decaf isn't coffee, it's just brown water

    I'm not diabetic, but I have a feeling I will reach a point in life where the only thing keeping me alive will be black coffee. Kind of like what happens after a 12 hour night shift.

    So if coffee is healthy in such a way, I will become 120 years old. At least.

    Just a note. This study was on diabetics only. Folks with diabetes have a shorter life expectancy and coffee and green tea might help them reach an age close to the life expectancy of the general population.

    I limit myself to one cup of coffee a day. Caffeine causes wrinkles.

    Stay away from diet colas. Just don’t.

    As for the beer, there’s always coffee stouts & porters.

    Green tea is great for weight loss because it speeds up your metabolism. It also fights free radicals in the body, and is also a proven cancer fighter.

    The benefits of coffee has been in numerous studies for over 30 years, it's the only good thing I got from the Army.
