Coffee is always in the press with it's good, it's bad argument. This book clearly spells out the facts on what coffee is and is...n't. Suppose you have a heart condition and your cardiologist says you should stop. Should you. Did you make the right choice or did you make things worse. Did the doctor render his / her opinion or did they just tell you some outdated fact. Was it specific to your Atrial Fibrillation or Stroke.
