Is coffee bad for you? It turns out that coffee's health effects are confusing. . . . Drinking coffee is linked to depression. College students who drink moderate to high amounts of coffee score higher in depression and lower in academic scores. Coffee drinking is also associated with anxiety and panic attacks.

Bt coffee is also rich in antioxidants and may even have some health benefits. Some studies even suggest that coffee could reduce your risk of type II diabetes, gallstones and even liver and prostate cancer.

Recent research suggests that the key may be keeping your coffee consumption low. The study followed 43,727 people for an average of seventeen years. Men under 55 who drank 28 cups of coffee a week had a 56% increased risk of death from any cause. Women under 55 who drank 28 cups a week were 213% more likely to die during the study from any cause.

This study suggests that if you drink coffee, you should drink less than four cups a day.
