DID THEY SAVE THESE REPORTS FOR FATHERS DAY WEEK?:

Coffee cuts damage from alcohol: Study (CARLA K. JOHNSON, 6/13/06, ASSOCIATED PRESS)

Coffee may counteract alcohol's poisonous effects on the liver and help prevent cirrhosis, researchers say.

In a study of more than 125,000 people, one cup of coffee per day cut the risk of alcoholic cirrhosis by 20 per cent. Four cups per day reduced the risk by 80 per cent.

The coffee effect held true for women and men of various ethnic backgrounds.


Okay, so beer and coffee are good for you--what next? Lying on the couch watching sports on tv?

The takeaway lesson I get here is that I should drink more Black Russians or the trendier Mocha Choca Lata Yayas.

Excellent - beer for the prostate and coffee to protect me from the beer. Just let me know that bacon will keep the coffee from making me twitch and all will be well in the world.
