Opening Arguments

Mr. Coffee

Man, they just can't make up their minds on coffee. It's bad for us, no, wait, it's good, uh-oh, here's a new study that's inconclusive. The latest news is really good for those of us who can't give the stuff up:

Coffee drinkers who worry about the jolt of java it takes to get them going in the morning might just as well relax and pour another cup.

That’s according to the largest-ever analysis of the link between coffee consumption and mortality, which suggests that latte lovers had a lower risk of death during the study period.

[. . .]

In fact, men who drank at least six cups of coffee a day had a 10 percent lower chance of dying during the 14-year study period than those who drank none. For women, the risk was 15 percent lower, according to Freedman’s work, published in the latest issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

So, you'll live longer and therefore be up all night for more nights, and on the death certificate it will say; "Cause of death: Got really, really tired."
