On Sunday I ran into a friend who asked me if I had been reviewed by any new publications. My answer was “No, not that I know of.”
I’m so glad I qualified that “no” because guess what book was reviewed in that Sunday’s Chicago Sun Times? Yes, that’s right, Sex, Murder And A Double Latte scored another major placement!
And the good news keeps on coming….
It appears that coffee is good for you! No, this isn’t just wishful thinking on my part. A new study shows that the average American who consumes a mere 1.64 cups of coffee a day (wimps) get the majority of their daily antioxidants from that very caffeinated beverage, a whopping 1,299 milligrams! That’s not to say that’s where Americans should get their antioxidants. Those silly nutritionists think that we should be eating more fruits and vegetables and getting antioxidants from them but since most of us American’s have embraced the Kellogg way of life scientists have resigned themselves to the fact that coffee is our one saving grace.
Furthermore a Japanese study showed that people who drink at least two cups of coffee a day are 50% less likely to get liver cancer than those who abstain from indulging in the beverage altogether. And it gets better! A recent Harvard study showed that men who drink 6 cups of coffee a day lowered their risk of type 2 diabetes by half and women who drank the same amount of coffee lowered their risk by 30%.
These are wonderful discovers. So I think we should all throw our concerns about insomnia and weight gain to the wind and base our diets on coffee and red wine (let’s not forget all the benefits of that wonderful drink) and dark chocolate (which is said to stave off depression, heart disease and lower your blood pressure). If we get sick we can always self medicated with marijuana which is sort of legal here in California.
Now I want to know when they’re going to start studying the positive effects of Absolut Vodka…
