Coffee Is Good For You; Really, I’m Not Kidding

What better topic for a break time posting than one about coffee, the ultimate break time consumable.  I love it for the warmth, the taste and the way it makes my brain lights up like a fireworks display.  The toy and play industry would not exist (actually capitalism would probably not exist) without coffee.  And now we find out its good for you.  Here is how Aaron E. Carroll puts it in his New York Times article:  "More Consensus on Coffee’s Benefits Than You Might Think:"

The researchers found 36 studies involving more than 1,270,000 participants. The combined data showed that those who consumed a moderate amount of coffee, about three to five cups a day, were at the lowest risk for problems. Those who consumed five or more cups a day had no higher risk than those who consumed none.
