Researchers have determined coffee improves one's financial status after government sponsored researchers received another federal grant allocating their pay raises.

Was this study done by the same idiots who told us that eggs were good, and then they were bad, and then they were good once more, and yet again bad, and currently the whites are good?

Five years from now there will be another article stating coffee's bad for you. It's just like eggs and milk. First they were good, then they were bad. Then they were good if you only had a little, then it was good if you only had the egg whites without the yolk or skim milk. Now I think they're back on the good list. If only these researchers would stop wasting taxpayer money to fund these studies, I'd have more money in my pocket to buy milk, eggs and coffee and see for myself whether it's taking its toll on my health.

Once again it is ok to drink! Stay tuned and a research geek will refute this in a little bit. Just like they have been doing for 50 years or more, a bunch of dorks locked up in rooms with no windows.

Consumption of food is statistically linked to death, with an r-squared of 1.00

It doesn't get more conclusive than that.

Pour me another.

Starbucks has done very well over the years regardless of scientific studies by dunderheads.

glad to read that many don't believe this and I agree what is good for us today will be no good down the line! Maybe coffee sales are down? I believe very little of what I read or see on the news. We are the United States of Corporations and the almighty dollar rules!
