Coffee - Real Age

Chatty Without Coffee!

Coffee Refill? It's Okay . . . I love my coffee - I drink a cup or two a day. I love Star Bucks coffee to0. Sometimes coffee gets a bad rap so I wanted to share some good news about coffee.

"Our Most Popular Tips »
If you sometimes have trouble cutting yourself off after only one cup of coffee in the morning, don't fret.

Actually, going back for a refill might not be a bad move. A few recent large-scale studies have uncovered some new by-the-cup health benefits of coffee. Check 'em out:

1 cup . . . may lower your risk of cancer. A 13-year Japanese study revealed that men and women who drank a cup or more a day were half as likely to develop cancer of the mouth, pharynx, and esophagus compared with people who didn't drink coffee. Be mindful of these symptoms of esophageal cancer.

2 cups . . . may fend off strokes. In a 24-year study, women who drank 2-3 cups a day were 19 percent less likely to have a stroke compared with women who drank less than a cup a month. One caveat: The benefit applied only to nonsmoking women with no history of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes. Do you think you could recognize the signs of a stroke?

3 cups . . . may safeguard your neurons. Middle-aged adults who reported drinking at least 3 cups of coffee a day were 65 percent less likely to have developed dementia or Alzheimer's by the time most of the group had reached their mid-sixties to seventies. Now, that's a lotta coffee. But not for everyone. Read this article to learn about the downside of too much caffeine.

What's in Those Magic Beans?
Although it's not clear how coffee does all of these wonderful, protective things, researchers suspect that the coffee bean's high level of inflammation-fighting antioxidants (called polyphenols) may have something to do with it. But is instant coffee as healthful as brewed? Find out the answer from the YOU Docs.

RealAge Benefit: Enjoying coffee if you like it -- and it likes you -- can make your RealAge 0.3 years younger."

Hi Chatty...well thanks heavens that coffee is good for ya! I never make coffee at's just not the same as my senior cup at McD's.
Starbuck's is great, but Dunkin' Donuts, when we're on the road is my fav. Trader Joe's has good java too, and I try to get a cup when daughter April and I hit the aisles and stock up on healthy stuff when I'm in N.C. visiting. Cracker Barrel and Waffle House is hard to beat too.
Just hand over the coffee, and nobody gets hurt is a good motto to live by!

Wish we had a Trader Joe in Michigan - loved it when traveling years back! They closed Cracker Barrel in Grand Rapids - We were going to have dinner there one night, drove down the road between Target, the Hobby Lobby, and Toys R Us, and - low and behold - where Cracker Barrel once stood was NOTHING - only remains of Re-Bar!!! No building, no parking lot - GONE! Depressing! They had good coffee AND good eats - but no more....
