Just Remember...

Thanks for that reminder, Molly...

Just remember, there's no such thing as 'Too Much Coffee'
(and 'I could quit anytime, just not today')

Christian: Ever think to yourself that maybe Coffee is your Idol? I mean, there are worse Idols to have, but you seem to love it a little too much. Don’t you think? And then you drag me into the fray.

Just kidding. ;)

Remember that scene from Princess Bride where Miracle Max is being hounded by his wife?

"Humperdink! Humperdink! Humperdink!"

"I can't hear you Charles!" :-)

Ahem. I drink coffee strictly for the Health Benefits:

Coffee increases the effectiveness of pain killers -- especially migraine medications -- and can rid some people of asthma. Some of the beneficial effects may be restricted to one sex, for instance it has been shown to reduce suicide for women, and prevent gallstones and gallbladder disease in men. It also reduces the incidence of diabetes in both sexes, but reduces the risk by about 30% in women and over 50% in men. Coffee can also reduce the incidence of liver cirrhosis and prevent colon and bladder cancers. Coffee can reduce the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma, a variety of liver cancer (Inoue, 2005). Finally, coffee reduces the incidence of heart disease, though whether this is simply because it rids your blood of excess fat or because of its stimulant effect is unknown.

There are of course the reasons most people drink coffee such as its ability to increase short term recall and increase IQ. It also changes the metabolism of a person so that their body burns a higher proportion of lipids to carbohydrates, which can help athletes avoid muscle fatigue.

Some of these health effects are realized by as little as 4 cups a day (24 oz), but others kick in at 6 or more cups a day (32 oz or more).

NOTE: Health benefits of decaffeinated coffee have not been found.

The guys who wrote that are obviously past the point of no return. They probably had 10 cups of coffee just to write that. I’m sure that they “could quite anytime” too.
