Good News for Coffee Lovers (Like me!)

One of my famous Lattees
One of my famous Lattees
Research finds the drinking lots of coffee saves liver from alcohol damage. A 22-year study of 125,000 people īsolidifiesī the linkage. Caffeine is not the key, as drinking tea has no effect. Now this is the kin dof news I can Wake up to!

As a typical software developer I partake in multiple lattees per day (usually About 5 or so) and finding that I;m actually being healthy in doing so - really feels good!

From the Article:
"Drinking as little as one cup of coffee a day could help protect you from liver disease caused by alcohol, according to research published today.

People who drink one cup of coffee are 20% less likely to have alcoholic cirrhosis than those who abstain from doing so.

And the protective effect increases with the more coffee you drink: People who drink two or three cups a day are 40% less likely to contract cirrhosis, while those who drink four or more cups are 80% less likely to suffer the disease."

Not too shabby eh?

As a side point: Did you know... The darker the coffee you drink the LESS caffine it has? Also espresso has less caffine then drip and the most caffine is from french press.
It all has to do with the amount of roasting (the rosting process destroys the caffine) and the amount of time the coffee sits in water (espresso is water forced through coffee very Fast - little caffine)

So the next time someone needing a caffine high orders a double espresso and the person beside them gets a medium or, even worse, light roast coffee because they donīt want the jitters - you can have a quiet personal giggle at their ignorance ;)

PS: Looking for really good coffee? start here (my fav!)
