Coffee, Health and Writers

There have been a lot of stories lately about coffee and health. This is very confusing. So since coffee is important to writers (to keep them awake when they should be sleeping for their real job), I decided to definitively clear this up: it is both risky to drink and not to drink coffee. THIS IS NOT a medical opinion and is not an endorsement by Flash Fiction Online to drink or not to drink coffee in any amount.

Increases risk: Gallstones 1, miscarriage/stillbirth 1 2, heart risks 1 2 3 4.

Reduces risk: Alzheimer's 1 2 3 4, Type 2 diabetes 1 2 3, Parkinson's 1 2, liver cancer 1 2, brain disorders 1, Gout in men 1, Kidney Cancer 1.

Omnibus articles: 1 2 3.

Bloggist unwilling to classify: reduces breast size in women 1
