Great Coffee News

In yesterday's column, Dr. Oz proclaimed coffee to be one of of the most beneficial weapons in the war against cancer.

I love reading these statistics about heavy coffee drinkers...
  • They are less likely to develop endometrial cancer than those who have less than one cup a day.
  • They run a 20 to 50 percent lower risk of getting breast cancer after menopause, versus women who sip less than a cup.
And equally important...

In 2011, coffee was confirmed to ward off Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases and Type 2 diabetes.

While I don't consider myself to be a heavy coffee drinker, I do enjoy my three cups every morning.
