Is Coffee Good For Me?

I drink at least one cup of coffee everyday. I've noticed that I crave and need that cup each day recently. Is it bad to have a cup a day or is it healthy?

Hi Amy and thanks for your question.

Whether drinking coffee is good - or bad - for one's health is a topic that's been covered a lot, in large part because so many people do drink coffee and because the data that comes out in various studies is often conflicting.

What jumps out in your question is the statement that you "crave" and "need" that cup of coffee, and you self-selected putting your question in the "Addictions" category of the EmpowHER website. That leads me to think that you may be worried about being addicted to the morning jolt you get from the caffeine in the coffee. So the real question is do you need some type of stimulation to get going and is coffee the best way to get it?

There are several articles written for the EmpowHER community on the pros and cons of drinking coffee. I will share some links below.
