    Caffeine isn’t necessarily bad for you. There are several studies showing the positive effects of it. Coffee isn’t bad for you either, there have been studies that show it can decrease the risk for heart disease, type two diabetes, colon cancer, and several other debilitating diseases.

    Hi, Bob.

    Claims and studies about caffeine have gone back and forth between everything from deadly carcinogen to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s prevention, and most points in between.

    The current view is that moderate amounts of caffeine (3 cups of coffee, or 300mg of caffeine per day) hasn’t been shown to have any effects of significance at all.

    All things in moderation.

    There have been many health claims about caffeine, both negative and positive. Currently, the most common view is that caffeine has no adverse effects when used in moderation (not much more than five cups of coffee a day for a healthy adult). The reason moderation is suggested is that caffeine raises the blood pressure very soon after the intake, which may increase the risk of a heart attack. Any long-term negative health effects of caffeine are currently not known.

    Black tea contains considerably less caffeine than coffee, and the beneficial effects of the antioxidants far outweigh the potential hazards of an exaggerated intake of caffeine.

    If you are concerned about getting too much caffeine when you drink black tea, a better alternative could be white tea, which contains much less caffeine and much more antioxidants.

    ~*~ The amount of caffeine in black tea is not very high. Three cups of black tea is equal to one cup of brewed coffee and the antioxidants in tea are very beneficial.
    During the past decade, extensive research on caffeine in relation to cardiovascular disease, fibrocystic ****** disease, reproductive function, behavior in children, birth defects, and cancer has identified no significant health hazard from normal caffeine consumption.
