Does anyone know if that includes iced coffee? Because regular coffee is too farking hot but I could use the liver assistance.

Wait, last week we read that caffeine hurts the liver.

Caffeine makes me suicidally depressed therefore I shall not have any of your coffee.

GOOD DAY, Sir.

#1.  If I don't have coffee, I will likely murder you.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:  I don't know about coffee preventing suicide, but it's damn sure prevented more than one homicide.

It's Irish coffee that hurts the liver.

I don't really care about my liver.  I mean, it's not exactly an asshole to me, but it's also never stuck its neck out for me, either.

I crash disproportionately hard from very little coffee, plus it gives me the jitters and hardcore anxiety/panic attacks. Wish it wasn't so.

So drink more?

Add me to the list of people who don't do well with caffeine. If I have any coffee after about 5pm I'm up until 3 in the morning. Deadly stuff. Oddly, it doesn't make me feel any more alert - just keeps far, far away.
 
2013-10-19 03:26:04 PM
Good, I'm drinking some right now.

Same. I can generally drink half a cup before I feel like shiate.
Love the taste too... Guess I'll just stick to drinking dark beer.

When I was a teenager, I sustained my existence through coffee, soda, and beer. A few years later, I thought to myself "This is gonna kill me, I need to stop drinking this much crap".

So I stopped drinking soda.

Okay I didn't even make it past the first "tidbit"

Americans get more antioxidants from coffee than anything else.
According to a study done in 2005, "nothing else comes close" to providing as many antioxidants as coffee. While fruits and vegetables also have tons of antioxidants, the human body seems to absorb the most from coffee.


Wow that's interesting, I wouldn't think that coffee would be that useful in the antioxidant side of things compared to other sources. Let me click on that study you guys are using...

www.eurekalert.org

Oh, you're saying that coffee is a primary source of antioxidants because we drink of ton of it compared to other sources of antioxidants, not because it's a particularly useful way to get antioxidants. I think that just says more about American diets than it does our intake of antioxidants.

Ah, coffee, black fluid of life :3

I also have to wonder if health benefits vary with strength.  If only because I pretty much was raised and grew up on Trucker Strength Coffee (and have drunk strong coffee from the time I hit puberty)...

...I honestly did not realise my family tended to drink coffee about three times the usual strength until I tried making coffee for others per my old man's instructions, and people accused me of attempting to murder them :D  (This included an amateur radio club's early version of a Tech In A Week course; I was unofficially banned from making coffee for the course after my first brewing.  The SO also kindly informed me before marriage that I tend to make Very Strong Coffee in comparison to other people, and post-marriage they realised that it was pretty much a general familial trait when introduced to my father's coffee :D)

But yeah, coffee is your friend, especially if you have teh asthma; whilst it's not the USUAL recommended method of staving off an asthma attack, if I feel the prodromals of an attack I can often keep things from going to the "ohgod albuterol rescue inhaler NAO" point by having a nice cup of Trucker Strength coffee.

And I have purchased a french press on a good bargain sale...originally for mate (when I do not want to fark with bombillas) but also maybe for future travel and camping and such...so hints/kinks/suggestions for favourite coffee types are appreciated :D  (Part of me wants to get some nice Yirgacheffe to try in the french press to see how it does, but seeing as I've never known anyone who had one...I know you do coarse grind, and I know the rough basics of how to use one from having done mate in them, just curious on Farkers' experiences :D)

Check out this table of antioxidants in beverages from this study:

Drink your espresso, guys. It's good for ya.

Also: while the same study shows you can get lots of antioxidants from fruits and vegetables, the foods with the most are herbs and spices.

RoyHobbs22: Plus it makes me poop.

I'm surprised it took this long to bring up this amazing virtue of teh cawfees.

Nothing beats going to work in the morning knowing that the pipes are cleaned out. It's mainly why I drink it now. The caffeine really doesn't do much for me otherwise.

Coffee prevented my suicide for years. After a dozen cups my hands shook too much to grip the razor or tie the sheets.


FTFA: Coffee is great for your liver (especially if you drink alcohol).

I often pour liquor in my coffee. Or use coffee as a chaser.

I think more people out there are used to making weak coffee than would like to admit, and you were just making it the correct strength. For the longest time, my dad's been using 1 scoop per cup, and the people at my office never even seemed to measure (before we got a Keurig). If you buy a package of coffee at the store, you might see the label recommending 2 tablespoons of grounds per 6oz water. I don't think you can get much stronger than that.

Too bad that anti oxidants have been debunked. That is the #1 reason from the article. I stopped reading right there..

I agree with that because I dislike coffee but if I really thought it was good for the ole liver I'd drink it.

A thought occurred to me: all these studies on coffee consumption don't account for exactly what kind of coffee people drink. From what I've read, dark roasts tend to have higher amounts of antioxidants and lower levels of acrylamide than light ones. The health effect of one could reasonably be different than that of the other.

Best movie scene ever, from "Kicking and Screaming" --

Mike Ditka: "Quit your crying! Here, have some coffee."
Will Ferrell: "But I don't even like coffee. It's a vascoconstirctor."
Mike Ditka:"What's wrong with you? It's the lifeblood that drives the dreams of champions."
