In brief: Coffee pros & cons

Coffee contains antioxidants that may offer some cardiovascular protection.
Studies have shown that it may reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, gallstones, dementia, parkinson's disease, prostate, colon and liver cancer. It may improve your mood and relieves headache. However, you should probably drink coffee in moderation as it can cause anxiety, insomnia, heart burn, and dehydration.

Coffee is like everything else...in moderation it has benefits. When people need that caffeine fix to get through the day it can be detrimental.
