David asks…

I like my coffee in the morning!?

some facts about coffe below but I add suger to mine and that is bad for me but there is no way I will ever drink it black what do i do to keep it healthy and sweet but in a healthy way?

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’d grow it if I could, but for now I’ll have to settle for the roasting to brewing for me.

I will only drink it black. If I need sugar, it’s not good enough. I know everyone has their own taste, that’s just mine.

The only thing that goes in my coffee is (in the evening) brandy, Irish Cream, Frangelico, Amaretto, or whiskey.

Ruth asks…

When will you stand for freedom, justice for all and ability to support your family in our great country?

The time is now my friend, now. It is time for you and me to do what ever you can do to make our country the best it can be. Simply by fallowing its laws, doing your best to be a productive, considerate person, as well as give of yourself in the form of a gift to charity or being a “Big Brother”
to a kid that needs validation and love. Things such as these do not take a lot of money to do and they may make a huge difference in a persons life. We can all participate in politics with out the name calling, bald face lies, and try to seek out worthy leaders. There are good people in this country that can lead us to better times. How can there not be? We are a creative bunch and will continue to be because of the greatness of our country’s diversity. We have brains from all over the world that come here as new American citizens and produce new and wonderful products the world buys. That is where our greatness is. We lead the world in many areas and will continue to do so.
Perhaps, we have forgotten how to be a good neighbor and help him if he has need. That is what I remember as a young boy growing up. My family helped anyone that needed help if they were able
to do so. I am very proud of being in a country in europe discussing our system with a complete stranger and being able to say we care about every body and especially of our own people in need. I have said to them “I know you don’t think we have poor people, but unfortunately we do”. We should not have poor in our country. There is no reason for it. Anytime we can give countries billions of tax dollars because they are our allies and they serve our interests does not excuse the fact our schools are falling a part and our teachers are laid off because of a budget that has fallen low on funds. The biggest of the turn offs for me is when kids graduate from school and cannot find a job., any job. Yes, we do have a great country with great people. Like children that at times get too much of everything and play with a toy for a minute before they throw it to the back, we as citizens also fail to see the good we have and do little to keep it except argue about non issues and poke fun of our next leader for the hell of it. We call each other names, question the Americanism we have and have the audacity to say to an other American “you should go back to where you came from”.
A great Idea is to get up with a smile, thank God you have a hot cup of coffee to start your day, then go do a good deed. Nothing has to be on a grand scale, just a little hello there and a smile over there!

Your “fact” about Marilyn Monroe having a sixth toe is a myth, which has been thoroughly debunked. Follow the link:

I would bet that your list contains other hoaxes as well. One fact remains: only idiots believe everything they read.
