If you love coffee as I do, there’s a new report for us from researchers on both sides of the Atlantic.
This report gives those of us who start our day with what our doctors will say is too much of it some hope for extended longevity.
“(Undated) — Two new studies suggest that drinking coffee may be good for you — even decaf. Researchers in the U.S. and Europe report that the more coffee people drank, the less likely they were to die early from heart disease, diabetes or cancer. Coffee didn’t seem to have any effect on the risks of other illnesses, like the flu or Alzheimer’s. Men seem to get more of a positive effect from coffee than women, though both showed reduced risk of early death. The studies were published Monday in the “Annals of Internal Medicine.””
My prediction is that if we wait long enough, some researchers somewhere will find there are life-prolonging qualities for bacon, lard, and vodka too.
That’s the way I see it.
