Coffee and Health

We love reading this kind of stuff: The New Elixir: A Cup of Joe! According to Dr. Paul Spector:

The world's most widely used pick-me-up reduces your risk of neurodegeneration, depression, cancer and cardiovascular disease, and that's just the beginning of the story. Yes, I'm talking about that legal, over-the-counter beverage now available every other block. You know, brain juice, brew, liquid energy, morning mud, rocket fuel, wakey juice.


Read the entire article here. And then go out and drink some more coffee! You can sleep when you're dead.

We can think of no better endorsement for drinking coffee than the words of Dr. Mehmet Oz, the one and only Dr. Oz, himself: Coffee is a real lifesaver!

According to Dr. Oz, in the war against cancer, coffee has become one of the most beneficial weapons you never suspected. In 2011, coffee was linked to lower rates of:

1. Endometrial cancer. Big coffee drinkers are 25 per cent less likely to develop it than women who don’t finish a cup. Dose: at least four cups a day.

2. Prostate cancer. It detests coffee. The newest data show that high test AND decaf repel even the most lethal type. Dose: one to six cups daily.

3. Most common skin cancer. If basal cell carcinoma gets a toehold, coffee acts to shut it down. Dose: more than three cups a day.

4. Breast cancer. Heavy coffee drinkers run a 20 per cent to 50 per cent lower risk of some breast cancers after menopause. Dose: at least five cups a day.

That’s not all. In 2011, coffee was confirmed to ward off Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, as well as Type 2 diabetes.

As Dr. Oz reminds us: What if you don’t like coffee, or it doesn’t like you? Fortunately, caffeine is one of coffee’s key protective compounds, and there are plenty of other places to get it, including caffeinated water plus green and black tea, also sold here at The Parrot Cafe. Drinking them can give you instant smarts to deal with tough tasks.
