Just thought I’d slip this quick thought in today. According to Oprah’s famous Dr. Oz, studies have shown, especially for men, that a reasonable amount of coffee can actually reduce liver cancer and to be effective with, or with symptoms of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. Awesome! He suggests 24 ounces a day to be a ‘rational’ amount to serve up to yourself. Be careful of those side-effects. Migraines, nervousness, and heart palpitations. Certainly ‘good news’ for us coffee fanatics!
