I saw this report on ABC last night, so I automatically question it's veracity.
But since it contained information that was favorable to me, I give it the benefit of the doubt.
The report basically helps enable my drug habit by touting the potential benefits of the chemical compounds found in coffee (both decaff and the regular kind).
From the story:
"Mounting evidence suggests all those lattes and cappuccinos might not only improve your mood, they might also improve your health. Daily cups of coffee have been linked to a reduced risk of Parkinson's disease, liver cancer, gallstones, and type 2 diabetes."Furthermore, the same studies show that the more coffee you drink, the more health benefits you get.
With that in mind, I've decided to take on a mid-year's resolution to quadruple my coffee intake. So for my daily lunch break, I'm now going to have four double espressos from Starbucks instead of just the one.
The beauty of this is that because I'm doing this for my health, I can use my healthcare reimbursement account to pay for the daily doses.
Just d-d-d-don't be surp-p-prised is I st-t-tart acting a lit-t-t-tle jit-t-t-tery.
