I remember my mother telling me drinking coffee too young would stunt my growth. Well, 5’10” seems OK to me; if that’s stunted I’m alright with it.
Nowadays everybody has a different opinion about coffee, and mine is: I’m glad it’s in my life. I feel that morning is no good without coffee, and I am here to tell you I’m an erratic driver if I haven’t had a coffee first.
But there’s more! We coffee drinkers are likely to outlive coffee teetotallers, by about 18%. I like what Harvard professor Dr. Alberto Ascherio said, “I think that the solid conclusion is that if you’re a coffee drinker, keep drinking your coffee and be happy.”
And, whew!, coffee is no longer considered a carcinogen. I am totally behind Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, who said “As a heavy coffee drinker, I have always enjoyed my coffee guilt-free, but now there is scientific evidence to justify that.”
Finally, drinking three (3!) cups of coffee a day may reduce your chances of skin cancer. I love me a good suntan, and (shameless plug) sitting on the patio in front of the Purple Perk with a couple-three coffee is a great way to get one. See you there!
