With so much being written about how tea is good for so many things, now they are saying that coffee also is good for you.

They say that, according to a Greek study, one cup of coffee a day could reduce your blood pressure. Researchers actually found that those who drank between one and two cups of coffee daily had the healthiest arteries.

Two cups a day (no more than two cups if you are pregnant) could keep Alzheimer’s at bay.

After studying more than 122,000 women, researchers found that three cups a day can reduce the risk of developing ovarian cancer. However, coffee drinkers who have more than three cups a day may increase their risk of a heart attack.

Coffee, like tea is packed with antioxidants which can potentially cut the risk of cancer however more than three cups a day could mean that you are twice as likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis.

Personally, I think I will stick to my occasional coffee and around 6 – 8 cups of tea a day.
