Sure, we can do without it and drinking tea is probably a lot better for us, but do you think coffee continues to get a bad rap? With one scientist’s invention of caffeinated donuts, the subject of coffee and caffeine is recently all the buzz. It seems that the caffeinated baked goods may work out for people who want the jolt of caffeine without the taste of coffee. One caffeinated donut is the equivalent of one 5 oz cup of coffee. It will be interesting to see how well these do once they are on the market.
Although most health fanatics may look down on coffee, studies have shown that coffee may not be that bad. Studies have shown that coffee contains antioxidants and in moderation, may lower the risk of type 2 diabetes and Parkinson’s disease. On the flip side, drinking too much coffee (more than 4 cups per day) could cause heart problems, increase blood pressure, cause headaches and restlessness.
I am a coffee drinker. On occasion, I may have one cup in the morning but for the most part, my day consists primarily of drinking water and tea. The biggest thing to remember is that it is all about moderation.
