Is coffee good to have and what is the limit per day?!

Question: Is coffee good to have and what is the limit per day!?
I drink about 17 mugs a day - i'm fine and my doctors have said it isn't having an effect on me - (I wouldn't recommend anyone 2 drink that amount when they are not used to it though) Caffeine affects different people in different ways so I don't think that there is a 'limit' that you can say applies to everyone - however much u drink as long as you are healthy it is fineWww@FoodAQ@Com

Its not good if your pregnant and on certain medications!. I usually limit myself to 3 a day!. I never go past 3 :) !. and i try not to have coffee everyday for long periods as it can cause withdrawals after all it is a drug!. My nana has bad headaches now and again and she has to have a coffee (she usually drinks decaffinated)!. That just shows that in her days she used to drink ALOT of coffee!. She used to have 5 a day, every day!. Eeek :) x x x x x x xWww@FoodAQ@Com

I found this on Coffee variances brew caffeine overdoses, and it goes in to details, on something that I have been wondering about for a while, what differences is there in coffee types, and the effects that it can have on us!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

2 cups maximum is not bad!. Healthywise speaking, it is good not to consume coffee because of the caffine present in it which is harmful for the liver!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Don't drink a pot of coffee a day!. You'll end up in the hospital with low sodium levels!. 1-2 cups is sort of OK!. And yes, I know this because my hubby ended up in the hospital and the cause was drinking 8-10 cups of coffee every morning!. Scared me to bits!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I too would be interested in this answer!

I seem to have subconciously made it my new years resolution to drink more!. I never had more than 2-3 cups a week previously and now I have that a day! I guess giving up smoking hasn't helped!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Honestly, one man's food is another man's poison!.

I don't take coffee!. I feel uncomfortable anytime I take coffee, so I stopped!.

I am glued to tea!. I take tea anytime!. Maximum 3 cups in a day!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

i heard that they're a benefits to drinking coffee, and the intake really depends on how much overall caffeine is in your diet!. I think moderation is key!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
