The Java Junkie's Dream

Rejoice! Your morning cup of joe is healthy. Experts on an American Society for Nutrition panel recently concluded that drinking three to five 8-ounce cups a day lowers your risk of type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, and colon and liver cancers. "Among other things, the antioxidants in coffee protect your cells and DNA from damage," Bowden says. "Coffee seems to increase antioxidants in the blood, too."

Shopping shortcut: Go easy on the Starbucks: One 16-ounce grande counts as two servings. Make it even healthier: Too much caffeine can wreak havoc on your sleep, so opt for decaf. It's still loaded with antioxidants.

Bonus benefits: Women who drink at least six cups a day are less likely to develop high blood pressure, revealed a 2005 study by Harvard scientists.

Thank you for this very helpful information! I am always wondering what types of food are helpful to keep cancer away and generally help me and my family stay healthy. Keep giving us this helpful information. I was on the brink of not eating any red meat and now know that I am doing ok eating tenderloin and grass-fed, lean red meats.

Make sure the chocolate you buy is fair trade... too often we look for the lowest price, but oftentimes this chocolate is made by slaves overseas.
