Coffee cures headaches

One minute they're telling you that coffee is bad for you, the next they're telling you it's good again.

Recently, I stopped drinking so much coffee, as I was getting really nasty headaches if I missed my morning cup of espresso. I have always had a problem with headaches, but this is usually due to my allergies — I'm allergic to half the planet. If only I could work out which half.

However, if this research is right, maybe I should drink it a little more often. “Take two ibuprofen, wash it down with some coffee and see me in the morning.”

As a side note, I'm also amazed that there is a “Current Pain and Headache Reports” journal.
