* consuming the coffee can reduce one's risk of diseases and ailments

as much it gives positives results, it can also produce negative results


- changes in one's sleeping pattern; insomnia
- auditory hallucinations
- hampers absorption of some minerals
- raise blood pressure
- dehydration, loss of vitamins

* one of the reasons for my insomnia is the caffeine consumption. I drink coffee almost everyday while in MMU, as part of my breakfast and sometimes during the night for studying. 

* I dont think it's to the extend that I'm hallucinating things but I do have massive headache if I get direct sunlight in the afternoon. 

* And ouhh, it helps with the bowel movement also I think. hehehe I poops rather easily when I drink the coffee each morning. Probably because I also take the cranberry juice every night before sleeps. 

* so do consume the caffeine moderately.
