Check BP: The primary concern is your blood pressure. Please have this checked. If your blood pressure is high you should drink only decaf coffee. Otherwise in moderation coffee may actually have beneficial effects. Research shows coffee drinkers may have lower rates of type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's, liver cancer & heart failure. I am available to consult with you further about your health on HealthTap.
