I’m Not Sure I Could

Fun article from a few months back in the WaPo:

The panel cited minimal health risks associated with drinking between three and five cups per day. It also said that consuming as many as five cups of coffee each day (400 mg) is tied to several health benefits, including a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

“We saw that coffee has a lot of health benefits,” said Miriam Nelson, a professor at Tufts University and one of the committee’s members. “Specifically when you’re drinking more than a couple cups per day.”

via It’s official: Americans should drink more coffee – The Washington Post.


I could drink more coffee, but I don’t think it would be wise. I’m right on the edge of “not quite an addict” and nowhere near “sorry I don’t drink coffee.”

It’s always fun when science, at least for this month, validates a life choice as healthy. Don’t count on it happening too often.
