A colleague told be that he would not give up his espresso, even if it's killing him.

He opined that the way it is brewed might result in less of the harmful LDL fatty acids ("bad" cholesterol).

I am skeptical, because it's kind of oily a syrupy, is it not? geek

This write-up makes it sound pretty good; I'm just a little bit concerned that the description concludes by telling us where we can buy some.

Coincidence? Suspect

If we can't trust Pasqua Rosee, who can we trust?

Another study reported in the popular press today -- Instead of fretting about having an additional cup of coffee, you should have two--you'll save your liver that way.

DISCLAIMER: Some of the claims below may be overstated.  Suspect  

T h e   V e r t u e   o f   t h e   C O F F E E   D r i n k

"THE Grain or Berry called Coffee, groweth upon little Trees, only in the Deferts of Arabia.

It is brought from thence, and drunk generally throughout all the Grand Seigniors Dominions.

It is a simple innocent thing, compofed into a drink, by being dryed in an Oven, and ground to Powder, and boiled up with Spring water, and about half a pint of it to be drunk, fafting an hour before and not Eating an hour after, and to be taken as hot as pofsibly can be endured; the which will never fetch the skin off the mouth, or raife any Blifters, by reafon of that Heat.

The Turks drink at meals and other times, is usually Water, and their Dyet confifts much of Fruit, the Crudities whereof are very much corrected by this Drink.

The quality of this Drink is cold and Dry; and though it be a Dryer, yet it neither heats, nor inflames more than hot Pofset.

It forclofeth the Orifice of the Stomack, and fortifies the heat with- [missing text] its very good to help digeftion, and therefore of great ufe to be [missing text] bout 3 or 4 a Clock afternoon, as well as in the morning.

[missing text] quickens the Spirits, and makes the Heart Lightsome.

[missing text]is good againft sore Eys, and the better if you hold your Head o’er it, and take in the Steem that way.

It suprefseth Fumes exceedingly, and therefore good againft the Head-ach, and will very much stop any Defluxion of Rheumas, that diftil from the Head upon the Stomach, and so prevent and help Confumptions and the Cough of the Lungs.

It is excellent to prevent and cure the Dropfy, Gout, and Scurvy.
It is known by experience to be better then any other Drying Drink for People in years, or Children that have any running humors upon them, as the Kings Evil. &c.
It is very good to prevent Mif-carryings in Child-bearing Women.

It is a most excellent Remedy againft the Spleen, Hypocondriack Winds, or the like.
It will prevent Drowfinefs, and make one fit for Bufines, if one have occasion to Watch, and therefore you are not to drink of it after Supper, unless you intend to be watchful, for it will hinder sleep for 3 or 4 hours.

It is observed that in Turkey, where this is generally drunk, that they are not troubled with the Stone, Gout, Dropfie, or Scurvy, and that their Skins are exceeding cleer and white.

It is neither Laxative nor Reftringent.

Made and Sold in St. Michaels Alley in Cornhill, by Pafqua Rosee, at the Signe of his own Head."

This just in from the Washington Post

"Unfortunately ... drinking a few cups of coffee a day cannot undo the systematic damage that is the result of being overweight or obese, sedentary, excessive alcohol consumption or drastically mitigate an unhealthy diet."

I'm sorry if I got your hopes up, only to dash them. Neutral
