Coffee - The New Health Food

We all know that tea is rich in antioxidants, "one of the best things you can drink," they say. Well, now coffee is praised by science as a disease fighter. From significantly reducing type II diabetes, "colon cancer by as much as 25 percent, reducing liver cirrhosis by as much as 80 percent, to helping alleviate asthma symptoms, knocking out headaches and, get this, preventing cavities," according to Fox News. Latte anyone?

I have asthma but I hate the smell of coffee. May be, I have to check on the research. Coffee would certainly be a bargain compared to my inhalers (which I would continue to take).

Did you know that research was conducted by this group?:

"The National Coffee Association of U.S.A. (NCA), established in 1911, is the leading trade organization for the coffee industry in the United States. Its members, who conduct nearly 90% of the business of the U.S. coffee market, include importers, roasters and retailers, as well as growers, exporters and suppliers. "

I'd say they are biased. Wouldn't you?

or to be fair it was not conducted by them, but cited. It would be interesting to actually look closely at the studies they reference and see what they are leaving out.

It is just as easy for me to cite something like http://www.caffeineweb.com/
