The cholesterol-raising compounds of coffee are removed by a plain paper filter.
What about two cups of filtered coffee every day with that oatmeal. Coffee has historically been a confusing story—originally linked to bladder and ovarian cancer, but that was just because coffee drinkers tended to be smokers. Coffee may cause heartburn and worsen osteoporosis, but maybe protect against diabetes, parkinsons, and Alzheimers. To sip or not to sip, what do you say, based on the latest research? How many say harmful??? Harmless??? Helpful??? Based on the latest science, helpful. Note this is for filtered coffee, though. There are some substances in coffee that raise your cholesterol, but they’re filtered out in the paper, so brewed coffee is ok, but something like plunger coffee or expresso may not be.
