A couple of years ago the Dallas Morning News published an article about a study that found coffee could help reduce the risk of Parkinsons disease. It also helps runners run better. And I don't mean to the bathroom.
So, I'll have another pot.

Think about having another pot but stuck at work with nothing but Maxwell house in the kitchen. Argggg...

Heavy Coffee Drinking Lowers Diabetes
Risk--Study
Fri Nov 8,11:17 AM ET
By Patricia Reaney
LONDON (Reuters) - Good news for coffee
drinkers.
The cup that helps millions of people get
started in the morning, and several
more cups throughout the day, may reduce the
risk of diabetes, Dutch
researchers said Friday.
Scientists at Vrije University in Amsterdam
said components in coffee seem to
help the body metabolize sugar, thereby
reducing the risk of diabetes, which
affects 130 million people worldwide.
"This is the first study that comes up with
the idea that coffee could actually be
beneficial for type 2 diabetes," said Rob
van Dam of the university's department of
nutrition and health.
Whether it's filter, cappuccino, latte or
espresso, coffee contains minerals such
as magnesium, potassium and other
micronutrients that have health benefits.
Van Dam and his team do not know which of
the compounds in coffee are
involved or how they work against diabetes,
but when they compared coffee
consumption with the risk of type 2, or
adult onset diabetes, they found the more
people drank, the lower their risk.
Individuals who drank seven or more cups of
coffee a day, were 50% less likely to
develop the disease. Fewer cups a day had
less of an impact.
"For most people it is not bad to drink
moderate amounts of coffee," Van Dam
said.
But he said the findings, which are reported
in The Lancet medical journal and
need to be confirmed in other studies, do
not mean people should drink large
amounts of coffee every day.
Studies have shown drinking too much coffee
can raise cholesterol levels and
increase the risk of osteoporosis, or
brittle bone disease, in some people,
according to Van Dam.
"It's quite an individual choice to drink
coffee or not," Van Dam said in an interview.
But he added if scientists knew more about
the active components in coffee, it
might be possible to make a type of coffee
or another product with more of the
beneficial compounds and fewer of the
detrimental ones.
Diabetes is a chronic disease caused by a
deficiency in insulin, or the inability to
use it properly. Type 2 diabetes, the most
common type, is caused by a loss of
sensitivity to insulin. Type 1 sufferers do
not produce enough insulin and need
daily injections.
Many people with Type 2 diabetes are
overweight or obese. Excess weight is the
most common and avoidable risk factor for
the illness, which experts estimate
will afflict 220 million people by the year
2010.

They say it can attack your central nervous system... 
But that's a good thing; I need to relax.
