Who Knew Coffee Was So Damn Good For You?
It’s positively freezing out, and almost everyone I know is thrilled about that. Funny how getting such warm and unseasonable weather makes us all yearn for the ‘real winter.’
The Daily Hampshire Gazette published a section about health yesterday, including an article about the power of coffee. “The good news is that most of the bad news you’re hearing is wrong,” said James Coughlin, spokesman for the National Coffee Association.
“There are actually some very nice beneficial effects of coffee consumption.” Drinking small amounts of coffee frequently throughout the day is better than having a Big Gulp at the end of the day. Studies have shown that coffee reduces depression and anxiety.
“There’s a whole group of diseases where coffee may have a protective effect,” Coughlin said. “Not just athletic and mental performance–we’re talking about real diseases.” Among these are type 2 diabetes, colon cancer, cirrhosis of the liver, and even Alzheimer’s. And coffee provides antioxidants which we all know are good.
And you know what I’m gonna say next…yeah, come drink our coffee at the GoNOMAD CAFE!
