Finally a Good Word on Coffee

According to the Washington Post, "Coffee not only helps clear the mind and perk up the energy, it also provides more healthful antioxidants than any other food or beverage in the American diet, according to a study released Sunday." This should help explain the thinking behind the Yavneh Coffee Club. Jak and I were thinking not only of clear minds and energy perks, but especially of those healthful antioxidants. In case you were wondering, the Wash Post also tells us what antioxidants are good for: they "are thought to help battle cancer and provide other health benefits." Unfortunately, as the article goes on to say, "that does not mean coffee is a substitute for fruit and vegetables."

furthermore there has been long standing research that regular small doses of caffeine help prevent parkinsons.
