The latest on coffee is that it helps prevent Alzheimers, but now, the BBC article says... People who drink too much coffee could start seeing ghosts or hearing strange voices, UK research has suggested. So folks who guzzle 7 cups of the brew every day are three times more likely to see Caspar or hear the dog talking to them? But, hey, that's okay cuz "They also stress that experiencing hallucinations is not a definite sign of mental illness and that about 3% of people regularly hear voices." I wonder if they mean the people with those Bluetooth things stuck in their ears 24/7 ;)
But, ohmygosh, When under stress, the body releases a hormone called cortisol which is produced in greater quantities after consuming caffeine, the article says, and all those tv ads says cortisol puts on belly fat, so, coffee kills you when it makes you put on belly fat which then gives you a heart attack!
I love this contradictory stuff.
