    Ahhh I'm happy I drink it all day everyday by the gallon !

    Although reading the article the risks aren't cut by THAT much.

    Not particularly, no, and the study found no causal link (just a strong correlation). I'd be curious to see if any follow-up studies (perhaps with improved methodology) reinforce this, or if this is just an outlier.

    First coffee is not good, then it's good, then it's not good, then it's good...

    If it helps with skin cancer, so much the better, but I'm gonna drink it anyway. Now that I am essentially retired, coffee in the morning helps to frame my day. I don't like using 2% milk in it, but it does keep fat consumption down. I even enjoy fiddling with the espresso pot once in a while.

    Coffee is good or not good depending on a lot of things, including your own constitiution and how much you have of it.... on the whole a cup a day is good I have heard

    Coffee tastes way better.

    Less flippantly, I wonder if the study's authors controlled for sunscreen use.

    Being nocturnal is the best protection against skin cancer.

    Coffee is like the one thing that inspires me with that energy boost to go exert myself at the gym. Otherwise, it can feel rather plodding.

    One cup has been shown to be beneficial. More wasn't found to be better and lead to other risks.
