- Reduce the risk of dementia?
- Reduce the risk of neurological disorders such as MS?
- Increase positive thinking?
- Make you live longer?

“Coffee is the world’s most popular drink, and research shows that our love of coffee and how much we drink is associated with the genes we inherit. Research conducted here in Australia at the University of Queensland shows that people who sense a stronger bitter taste prefer tea and those who sense less bitterness prefer coffee. But, it’s not just about taste. Genes that affect how well we can break down caffeine also influence how much coffee we tend to drink.” – Dr Denise Furness
“You might think that most naturopaths would be against coffee, right? Wrong! Like many people, Jules enjoys a cup most days (single shot coconut flat white please). But is it safe for everyone? Find out who should and shouldn’t be having it, how much per day is ok, and how to choose an alternative milk that doesn’t cause more harm than good.” – Jules Galloway
“Coffee most definitely affects how we feel, with caffeine being a drug that many have a dependence on. Instead of being ‘good’ or ‘bad’ it should be thought of as a tool, to be used appropriately. Understanding how it works will help us understand appropriate use.” – Jabe Brown
“Coffee provokes so much robust debate in health and performance circles… On balance, coffee is associated with positive health benefits and is a known ergogenic (performance boosting) beverage… but as with most things, the devil is in the details and it isn’t the best choice for many people… Join us at the debate to find out more.” – Cliff Harvey
Dr Karl explains why you should never ditch coffee for a ‘health kick’ – and the exact amount you should drink daily
