A little bit about myself. I'm a coffee drinker. Okay...truth is, I probably drink TOO much coffee. I drink three cups in the morning before I head into to work. Then, I drink at least one pot at work. sounds like drinking coffee is prolonging my life, at least according to this study.

A new study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine found that drinking coffee on a daily basis can lower the risk of contracting a range of deadly diseases. Dr. Janette Nesheisat, a Fox News medical contributor, said, "This study [was] just published … Over a period of 7 years, 170,000 people were followed." And for those who "drank anywhere from 1.5 cups to 3.5 cups" of coffee a day, she added, those individuals increased their life span by about 20%. People also "reduced the risk of diseases" by drinking coffee, she said. Plus, "you feel better, you live longer," she said. "Coffee has over 1,000 chemical compounds," she added, including "antioxidants and anti-inflammatories." "It can help prevent heart disease [and] it can help fight cancer, even Parkinson's," she said. She said that according to the new study, the benefits of drinking coffee on a daily basis apply to decaffeinated versions as well.

And if 1.5 to 3.5 cups is good for you...3 cups and a full pot should be great, right??! Okay...back to my coffee...
