Topic: Coffee in the New York Times (4 msgs / 114 lines)
1) From: Edward Rasmussen
I read an interesting article concerning myths and facts of the health
effects of coffee in the science section of today's New York Times.
After reading it, I went online and found the article at this url:

I don't know if you'll need to register to get to it.  If you do, it's
free and I've never gotten any spam from being registered at the NYT
site.
Overall, coffee is probably good for you, if you needed that
endorsement.

Interesting article...thanks for sending it Ed!  I'm always surprised at how
many people try to "quit" coffee for some assumed health benefit.  I'll
definitely be forwarding this article around.

Thanks for forwarding this. I don't know about others on this list, but one
thing I grow weary of is all of the people who learn about my love of coffee
and proceed to tell me all the reasons why coffee and caffeine are bad for
me. Most of the info they spout is based on rumors and urban legend.
Ironically, it seems that the ones who nag most persistently are also the
ones who typically have a problem with either weight, smoking or alcohol
consumption. I simply reply to them that I've chosen the lesser of the four
evils. ;-)
But it is really nice to have documented evidence to refer them to. I will
be bookmarking this link!
Thanks,

questions...)

This is the effects of being a country settled by puritans..  If it is
something you enjoy... it must be sinful, and therefore must be
stopped.  Be it alcohol, coffee, food, music, etc.
You are put here on this earth to work and suffer, not to enjoy yourself.
It's interesting how the the attitudes of settlers 500 years ago still
affects our culture today.
Anyway, I'm happily enjoying an after lunch cup of Kenya Thika -
Gethumbwini Peaberry - it sill needs a day or so of rest (roasted
yesterday) but quite good nonetheless.
