The Case for Drinking as Much Coffee as You Like

Dr. Peter Martin, director of the Institute for Coffee Studies at Vanderbilt University:

What I tell patients is, if you like coffee, go ahead and drink as much as you want and can.

Another win for architects. Let's see. That makes coffee good for fighting against: sleep, type 2 diabetes, certain types of cancer, pain relief, and much more.

More from Dr. Martin:

Coffee and caffeine have been inexorably intertwined in our thinking, but truth is coffee contains a whole lot of other stuff with biological benefits.

Just don't go all crazy with the super-flavored sweeteners over the holidays. Those kill the benefits of what coffee is doing for you.
