Coffee good for you?

http://www.realage.com/tips/health-benefits-of-coffee-non-dairy-creamer?eid=7224&memberid=22590824

So today, Dr. Oz told me it was OK to have another cup of coffee! It seems my coffee is full of “good-for-your-body antioxidants” and may lower risk of cancer, stroke, and diabetes. Just go easy on so-called creamers; they block the good stuff. In addition, watch that sugar.

All of these years I have enjoyed my coffee, in spite of calamitous warnings from the medical community… hummm, this morning I say to you all…drink up, have another cup. IT’S GOOD FOR YOU! Dancing Boo hoo! Applause

Very informative Applause
But only thing I like about coffee is its aroma, I am a religious tea drinker.

I'm not debating you at all, I agree about the antioxidants. But I am somewhat wary of doctors with one syllable names....

Well, cofee is not always "decaf" as they say it is. Caffeine is veeeeeeeeery bad for the body and people should watch what they ingest. It's like saying cigarette's good for you.

The steam from fresh brewed coffee is filled with the homocyclic enzymes that combat free radicals in the body. Breathe deeply my friend, no consumption required.

Indeed, caffine is an addictive substance, and the chemical used to decaffinate coffee is the same chemical used to dry clean clothes (yech!).
The Swiss Water process to decaffinate is cleaner but makes the coffee VERY expensive.
With either method, there is always residual caffine.
Tea has lots of caffine too, but your body processes it differently so you do not feel the negative effects as intensly.

Everything in moderation is the key!
