Do you have any information regarding the benefits or other considerations of drinking coffee and tea? – Kate


Hi Kate, You can find literature on the pros and cons of drinking coffee. I am a proponent of Peter D’Adamo’s blood type diet. D’Adamo does not recommend coffee for someone with O type blood (the most common) because of the acid content. However, the Life Extension brand sells a very low acid coffee rich in antioxidants. We also sell a caffeine free version if theobromines are an issue (fibrocystic breasts). Be aware that coffee as well as black tea are dehydrating and extra water consumption is required. There are dozens of herbal teas. Some such as green or white tea are rich in health promoting antioxidants. I suggest drinking teas that work with your blood type.
