Via productivity weblog DumbLittleMan comes this pretty comprehensive list of The Pros And Cons of Coffee Drinking. Most interesting to me:

Antioxidants. Coffee is loaded with antioxidants like chlorogenic acid and melanoidins.

Who knew? And…

# Liver cirrhosis. Coffee drinking may protect against liver cirrhosis, especially alcoholic cirrhosis.

Now I know why I follow a night of JagerBombs with a morning of Starbucks chasers. I thought it was for the hangover.

    Three sounds about right (I just finished my third of the day, and that’s my average). But I aim to not have any after Noon since it could prevent me from having the most restful night’s sleep possible, which might drive me to have a fourth – or more – the next day. But you need to balance the potential good with the potential harm, especially dehydration during cold winters, which will have you reaching for the skin moisturizing cream.

    Rick makes a good point…I get 3-4 cups a day too. I am not sure if the dehydration from coffee is what makes lip moisturizer an absolute necessity for me in the winter. I am defintely addicted at this point. It’s worth it though. I quit once for awhile but then I just figured, “what’s the point?”
