Coffee Drinking Linked To Long Life

Coffee Drinking Linked To Long Life

“It could be related to the antioxidants in coffee which will help ward off life threatening diseases. Then again green tea would probably be an even healthier choice and also contains good levels of antioxidants, also dark chocolate, red wine, berries, tomatoes and the list goes on and on. There's lots of things that are good for us but in moderation. Unfortunately this survey doesn't cover my age group, perhaps there is a difference between the two that is greater. The younger people are living in a junk food nation and we are also exposed to higher levels of pollution for more of our lives then the people who are 50+. A large amount of youth are inactive and at risk for all sorts of diseases, coffee or not. Also jobs are becoming more inactive and many labor positions have been replaced by machines in factories.”

“As for the comments about fruits and veggies being harder to store than snack and junk food, I'm sorry but this just isn't true. I myself have worked in produce and know that most fruits can actually be kept at room temperature for a week if not two weeks at a time. Apples, oranges, bananas, clementines, peaches, pears, apricots, nectarines, tangerines, grapefruit, plums, pineapples, cantaloup, honeydew melon, watermelon, mangos, tomatoes, avocados, kiwis just to name a few. There really is no excuse. This is a matter of laziness in my honest opinion. Who on earth in their right mind decided that it's a great idea to get kids to burn energy and nutrients all day and then try to replenish what they lost with cheese doodles and nilla wafers? I can't even believe this article... Incredible!”

“All through school, the kids in our family took lunches to school. Mom made sandwiches the night before with apples, carrots & celery sticks, banana, even home-canned fruit (cherries, peaches, pears) in thermos-style jars, and we took them out of the fridge and went to school. (A family of six, so we saved money and ate well). I continued this into my work career, and never or rarely even used the company fridge. A thermos of milk or a can of pop are still fine at midday.”
