Drink More Coffee!!

This is good news for you coffee fiends –
The steaming cup that wakes you up can also keep you healthy. Research shows that coffee protects against a variety of ailments—from cavities to colon cancer. And some studies suggest that the more you drink, the better.

The beverage lowers your risk of type 2 diabetes and can protect your liver from damage, too. Caffeine gets the credit for some of coffee’s magic powers, including protection against Parkinson’s disease and gallstones. But coffee’s main benefit comes from its wealth of antioxidants. In fact, the coffee bean, which is technically a berry, has one of the highest antioxidant contents of all berries, says Tomas de Paulis, Ph.D., formerly of the Vanderbilt University Institute for Coffee Studies. That’s why, drop for drop, coffee has more of these nutrients than even red wine. If you have osteoporosis, be sure to follow your doctor’s advice for calcium supplementation, because in some studies, coffee drinking has raised the risk of bone fractures.

    Silver – like you need a justification ..

    NM – Are you an alien? How does one go through life sans caffeine? Sounds impossible to me.

    Az – More wine. You must need more wine. Wait, maybe that’s me. Having had no alcohol touch my lips for a month now, I’m ready to kill for anything that would get me a little high. I’m so desperate I’m exercising, hoping for an endorphin rush. 🙂
