Coffee as a Health Drink? Studies Find Some Benefits

Coffee is not usually thought of as health food, but a number of recent studies suggest that it can be a highly beneficial drink. Researchers have found strong evidence that coffee reduces the risk of several serious ailments, including diabetes, heart disease and cirrhosis of the liver.

I can't tell you how vindicated this makes me feel about...well, virtually every morning for the past 25 years or so. What can I say? Just trying to ward off diabetes and heart disease. Call me a health nut.

Let the research continue. If coffee turns out to be a health drink, there's no telling what amazing discoveries are about to be made concerning Snickers bars, bratwursts, and -- dare we even say it -- Shiner Blonde.

Science. You have got to love it.
