From lowered cancer risks to a sharper memory, more studies are showing that coffee is good for you – but why?
Regular coffee drinkers have a 39 percent decreased risk of head and neck cancer, according to a new study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. Those who drank an estimated four or more cups a day had significantly fewer cancers of the mouth and throat than non coffee drinkers, the study found.
Well that's nice to know.
I've read so many articles about how common food that we eat every day is going to kill us that it's nice to read about some of the benefits too, though the article does go on to say that coffee can do bad things as well.
And this year the Apostles' Fast seems to be going on for ever (for people on the Old Calendar it will be even longer than Lent), and I seem to drink more black coffee during the fasts, because I don't like black tea, so it's nice to know that it has some benefits.
