A lot of info to consider.I don't drink coffee. However, when my 10 yr nephew tried my dandelion root tea, he said it tasted like coffee. So heres to the taste without the caffeine. Plus, the tea is a good for the liver tea.
Very informative article....................Thank You.
Been drinking coffee since age 6 or so, always have, like the taste, will still do it, no matter the rules.
If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up.
Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.

I'm surprised how many american everyday foods STILL contain hydrogenated fats.
In the UK they where phased out years ago because of the absolutely terrible affect they have on health.
The part about cholesterol is misleading--- only a very small percentage of people have high cholesterol due to diet--cholesterol troubles are way more complex than oh, I ate eggs/bacon/cheese. The cause of clogged arteries is inflammation/injury to the arterial wall. Cholesterol is sent by the body to repair the damage wall--so we needn't worry about our cholesterol but rather what is damaging our arterial walls. No damaged walls--no cholesterol buildup.
All suggestions were very informative. The booze one cracked me up. This many drinks are OK but don't start if you already don't drink. Like who would do that? Just read studies on the positive effect of up to 3 cups of coffee having an effect on prostate and uterus cancer. I don't drink it and don't plan on starting to do so. Had to be caffeine and Italian style, though. Preferably organic. Still a no for me.
Thank you for the great tips.
All good advice. Thanks
beans are so good for the heart
Beans are great sources of fiber, I count carbs for diabetes.
I try to remember that sugar is hard on my heart.
Sugar is my challenge. And it's always in the form of chocolate. I am working on it but very difficult to cut the cravings.
