    Here’s good news coffee drinkers, a new study from the University of Birmingham School of Sport and Exercise Sciences says that moderate coffee intake does not dehydrate you.  Not only does it not dehydrate you, but it helps contribute to your daily fluid requirements just like any other drink does—well, let’s not say any other.  It has been a common held belief that coffee and other caffeinated beverages could lead to dehydration due to its diuretic properties.   Hydration analysis of study participants revealed no significant differences in total body water or any blood measures of hydration status between participants who drank coffee and those who drank water.
