Coffee: The New Health Food?

  Plenty of health benefits are brewing in America's beloved beverage.

Want a drug that could lower your risk of diabetes, Parkinson's disease, and colon cancer? That could lift your mood and treat headaches? That could lower your risk of cavities?

If it sounds too good to be true, think again.

Coffee, the much maligned but undoubtedly beloved beverage, just made headlines for possibly cutting the risk of the latest disease epidemic, type 2 diabetes. And the real news seems to be that the more you drink, the better.

Reducing Disease Risk

After analyzing data on 126,000 people for as long as 18 years, Harvard researchers calculate that compared with not partaking in America's favorite morning drink, downing one to three cups of caffeinated coffee daily can reduce diabetes risk by single digits. But having six cups or more each day slashed men's risk by 54% and women's by 30% over java avoiders.

Though the scientists give the customary "more research is needed" before they recommend you do overtime at Starbuck's to specifically prevent diabetes, their findings are very similar to those in a less-publicized Dutch study. And perhaps more importantly, it's the latest of hundreds of studies suggesting that coffee may be something of a health food -- especially in higher amounts.

In recent decades, some 19,000 studies have been done examining coffee's impact on health. And for the most part, their results are as pleasing as a gulp of freshly brewed Breakfast Blend for the 108 million Americans who routinely enjoy this traditionally morning -- and increasingly daylong -- ritual. In practical terms, regular coffee drinkers include the majority of U.S. adults and a growing number of children.

"Overall, the research shows that coffee is far more healthful than it is harmful," says Tomas DePaulis, PhD, research scientist at Vanderbilt University's Institute for Coffee Studies, which conducts its own medical research and tracks coffee studies from around the world. "For most people, very little bad comes from drinking it, but a lot of good."

Consider this: At least six studies indicate that people who drink coffee on a regular basis are up to 80% less likely to develop Parkinson's, with three showing the more they drink, the lower the risk. Other research shows that compared to not drinking coffee, at least two cups daily can translate to a 25% reduced risk of colon cancer, an 80% drop in liver cirrhosis risk, and nearly half the risk of gallstones.

Coffee even offsets some of the damage caused by other vices, some research indicates. "People who smoke and are heavy drinkers have less heart disease and liver damage when they regularly consume large amounts of coffee compared to those who don't," says DePaulis.

There's also some evidence that coffee may help manage asthma and even control attacks when medication is unavailable, stop a headache, boost mood, and even prevent cavities.

I Caved

and had some chilled rhubarb I stewed yesterday

When I see her smiling face and watch her reach out to people who need a friend

and a clue as how to do this,  I too appreciate her being here.


 (and about the "Obama-care-physcicfriendsnetwork-handsacrossthewater plan,"

Let's keep that under wraps right now, that's 4 years off.)


My Plan?

I am going to tie my hands up with my feet and put my feet in wet cement so I can't untie my hands and smoke

Winding The House

Someday you'll learn how to live life for you, 
You'll set your values and know what to do
Then you can live life as never before  
Here is the key that can open the door...

In the upper room where your memories bloom and the moments turn to years
Where all your past experience lies, the pleasure and the fear
Where fantasies are your release, where your sub-conscious plays
Now is the time to climb the stairs, time to go all the way

Wind your house,
find your heart,
look deep inside you and tear it apart
Wind your house,
'till you see, the core of your being with no mystery

Throw back the lid of the old leather trunk,
brush all the cobwebs away
Until you do you can never be true to a person that you never met
Take all the pain that would drive you insane,
the bad memories festering there,
Tie it all up with the strength of your will, carry it all down the stairs

Wind your house,
find your heart,
look deep inside you and tear it apart
Wind your house,
'till you see,
the core of your being without mystery

Drive down your street slowly, with your windows open, barking like a dog.

(The domino effect)

Got That?

Sometimes you have to soften the ice cream in order to stop the brainfreeze

Diplomacy is the art of saying good doggie while looking for a bigger stick

If your wife wants to learn to drive, don't stand in her way.

The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.


I'm Taxed

You Too?


What I'd really like to do is bail out a bank.

Let's do that with our cigarette money.

I'm sure it will come back to us in the form of higher credit interest, a credit pinch, or gigantic bonuses for

someone that doesn't need it.


what can we lose?


I'm going to give those who are struggling a few tips to make it easier to gain ground


you have to decide to quit. Notice I didn't say "want to", or "have to"


you have to not have them around where you could smoke them

if that means telling your partner to lock them away, buy them a small chest with one key. (whatever)


and, this is the AhHa moment, whenever you have the urge to smoke after you've quit,

say AhHa out loud or silently to yourself. You have to do this everytime you think about smoking

to break the habitual mindless repetition of picking up a smoke and fire and inhaling.

You "trick" your brain to think of something else.

Think about it.

If you smoke a pack a day, you would say this to yourself 20 times a day.

If you do it for one week, your mind will change from thinking about smoking to AhHa.

This is the quickest way I know to recognize and relinquish the mental difficulties of quitting.

Don't thank me. Save yourselves.

"Dear, I'll take the burned side of the bed tonight, you had it last night."

Why is it so impossibly hard to stop smoking during the day when we obviously get by without it when we sleep?

Could it be because we "decide" to smoke when we are awake.


novena-uhio a word ?



We sure had some great excuses didn't we???

i see a lot of unnecessary motion.

why not shorten the perceived agony with the truth

When you reach the time in your quit when you reach for it and don't care when you don't find it


You've Arrived!

What am I making?

Keep them away from your face

better get working on that

Until you are honest with yourself, you are pissing in the wind.

Ten drops of Marmanighrutham applied on the head is ideal for giddiness.

they are sending the smoking bathroom diplomat home and taking his plum job away.


the price of smoking


No Smoking

If thats what you believe, thats what will happen.


think differently, shake it up.


things will be new but your thinking must be new.


and by the way, this is what I learned the truth to be in the 3 1/2 years I haven't smoked.

I've been on smoking boards since 2 weeks after I quit.

I've heard everything. There is nothing new, just new people trying to quit.


Most people kill their own chances of quitting with their

preconceived notions based upon past failed attempts.

No one need fail. It is not a prerequisite to quitting.


it gets easier as you decide each time you would have smoked

that you made a choice to quit

and you're going to        honor that decision and yourself

by keeping it.

When you're hiding eggs in the yard for yourself

Stop It
