The Wonder Speed

Moderate coffee drinking 'more likely to benefit health than to harm it' say experts,
BMJ, November 22, 2017.

I have never been a fan of stimulants. I've always figured the natural diurnal cycle of activity and rest was just fine. Living in Berkeley I've observed the sad antics of speed freaks.

But, I've always liked the bitter alkaloids and "soft" stimulant power of coffee. "Speed Kills," but Coffee Thrills!

This coffee research above is " umbrella review of 201 studies that had aggregated data from observational research and 17 studies that had aggregated data from clinical trials across all countries and all settings."

It produced "...evidence from over 200 studies and find that drinking three to four cups of coffee a day is associated with a lower risk of death and getting heart disease compared with drinking no coffee. Coffee drinking is also associated with lower risk of some cancers, diabetes, liver disease and dementia."

Risks: pregnancy and slight fracture risk increase in vunerable women.

"Coffee was also associated with a lower risk of several cancers, including prostate, endometrial, skin and liver cancer, as well as type 2 diabetes, gallstones and gout. The greatest benefit was seen for liver conditions, such as cirrhosis of the liver."

And "...beneficial associations between coffee consumption and Parkinson's disease, depression and Alzheimer's disease."
