Wandering Eye: Coffee is actually good for you, the Maryland Green Party remains on the ballot, and moreStory | Jan 20, 2015 | 8:08 AMGreat news, everybody! It turns out that coffee is good for you! According to an article by Consumer Reports published in The Washington Post, current research says that "people age 50 to 71 who drank at least one cup of coffee per day had a lower risk than nondrinkers of dying from diabetes, heart disease or other health problems when followed for more than a decade." In another study, led by the Harvard School of Public Health, "those who drank four or more cups of caffeinated coffee per day were 20 percent less likely to develop depression than nondrinkers." Oh, and it decreases your likelihood for developing Type 2 diabetes. We here at Baltimore's Most Caffeinated Alternative Weekly feel a lot more justified in our multiple-pots-a-day coffee habit.
