    Do you agree or disagree with the list of benefits of drinking coffee?

    I mostly agree in that they are all either true, or have been shown to some degree to support a statement. Do note that most of those statements use "can" and "may", never "does".

    #13, there are foods and drinks that contain much more anti-oxidants than coffee... be careful how you read that statement.

    Also, due to the roasting process, a chemical called acrylamide is formed. This chemical has been shown to increase the risk of cancer.

    But, toasted bread has like 5x the amount that coffee does... so take it as you wish. I'm not going to stop drinking coffee.
