Coffee A Health Drink?
Yocto Yotta wrote to mention an article from The Independent which would seem to indicate that coffee has numerous health benefits, and could be construed to be a ‘health drink’. From the article

A study has found that coffee contributes more antioxidants – which have been linked with fighting heart disease and cancer – to the diet than cranberries, apples or tomatoes…[antioxidants in coffee] have been linked to a number of health benefits, including protection against heart disease and cancer. Studies have associated coffee drinking with a reduced risk of liver and colon cancer, type two diabetes, and Parkinson’s disease.

    I read that as I was drinking a cup of great strong coffee. Funny, it didn’t change the way it tasted at all.
    Im sure chocoolate would be the same if doctors started prescribng it for a person’s health. We all know already it does wonders for one’s emotional health and all around well-being.
