The New Benefits of Drinking Coffee!!!


April 2015

Have you heard!  There’s a new study out that shows impressive benefits for those who enjoy their daily cup of coffee!  What are they?  Um.  Uh, yeah.  I don’t know.  I turned the TV off after I heard the teaser, before the report aired.

Three weeks ago, or so, there was another report that brought light to a study that purported to show coffee as having negative affects. 

A month or two before that it was good.  Another month or two before that, it was bad.  This has gone on for decades.  Tennis matches have fewer swings.

The truth?  Good God, who knows.  We do know it has more free radical killing anti-oxidants per cup than any other foodstuff, by several times, known to mankind.  Seriously.  Coffee puts the blueberry or the acai berry to shame.  Green tea?  It’s not even close.  We also know that if you separate the compounds of coffee (I think there are 27) and inject those compounds into rats in amounts that no human (let alone a rat) could consume, several will cause cancer.  What does this show?  If you drank five gallons of coffee a day, it might be bad for you.  Let’s say this isn’t exactly shocking.

The point is, this is something as simple as coffee and they still can’t figure out if it’s good or bad.  

My reality is that I don’t care anymore.  I’m going to drink coffee because I love coffee.  We also know coffee is good cycling fuel.  

I already had mine and at the time this is published, I’ll be out on a sixty miler.  We do know that’s good for a person!  Or maybe not.

    LOVE my morning cup(s) of coffee. I don’t drink it for the “benefits.” I too drink it because I love the stuff.

    I agree with you that ignoring “the latest new study” about coffee is wise, but for the opposite reason. Coffee will remain a nasty, brown liquid no matter what anyone says!

  5. My gran used to say to me “a little of what you fancy does you good”.

  6. Coffee is liquid gold! And in my case, it prevents cruelty against other human beings. Speak to me before my first coffee and you may get your head ripped off. So here is a definite pro for me drinking coffee. 😁

    I had a feeling that this post was going to have a touch of sarcasm. I am glad to say that it didn’t disappoint! There is far too many ‘latest studies show’ articles reported in the news, which if you look into turn out to be BS…
