The health benefits from drinking coffee continue to be reported-to the point where many of the results seem almost too good to be true.

Coffee reduces diabetes risk. Drinking six cups a day slashed risk of diabetes by 54% for men and 30% for women in an 18 year Harvard study. Even drinking only one cup a day was found to reduce risk by several percent.

At least six other studies indicate coffee-drinkers reduce their risk if Parkinson’s disease by up to 80%. In addition, other studies have reported that drinking at least two cups of coffee a day can reduce risk of developing colon cancer by 25%, risk of gallstones by 50% and risk of liver cirrhosis by 80%.

There’s even evidence that coffee drinking offsets some of the health damage caused by smoking and excessive drinking-those who engage in such health vices but also drink cofee have been reported to suffer less heart and liver damage than those who don’t.

And other studies have indicated cofee may help control asthma, relieve headaches, lift spirits and even prevent cavities.

Coffee also increases athletic performance and endurance-until recently, it was a controlled substance at the Olympic Games.

Moreover, coffee is even good for children. One study in Brazil indicated that children (age 12 average) who drank coffee with milk were less prone to depression and were more alert in school. No study indicates that coffee consumed in reasonable amounts is in any way harmful for children

Does anyone know where the nearest Starbucks is?


We all know stress is not fun.  Here are some techniques to help you and your love ones to relieve stress. 

  • Writing for 10 to 12 minutes about what’s bothering you or stressful events can help.
  • Let your feelings out by crying, talking, laughing.  Talking to love ones, friends and family about your problems is a healthy way to relieve stress.
  • Do something you enjoy like a hobby, working out, or walk your pet.

If you feel that you do not have the time to do these things that might be the reason why you’re stressed out.
