    Yes but if you like coffee, I mean if you really are a coffee person, then drinking a good coffee (the qualification matters) makes you happy. And as your doctor will have little hesitation in agreeing, being happy is good for you.

    Coffee is just too good to be innocent.

    Coffee is so stimulating that a really good cup used to keep me up most of the night, but since going onto certain heart medication, coffee makes me sleep. Obviously it’s overstimulating the heart that’s on the way out, but without the coffee I might as well be dead anyway. And it’s no different from the heart medication that doesn’t work but gives you an overactive Thyroid and potential Pulmonary Fibrosis within the first few weeks. Who needs coffee when you can get an overactive Thyroid from prescribed medication? Of course I could have a beer to slow me down but that’s off the menu as well. Ok, I give myself 7.6 out of 10.

    My experience is that reducing salt is far the best thing for everyone. Working from a low of say 140mg of salt per 100 gm in certain chosen foods, did you realise that plain old Rice Bubbles has 690mg per 100gms. I have also noticed that when manufacturers reduce the salt in their products it almost follows that the sugar and fat are also lowered. I am wondering whether it has something to do with a lowered preservation level due to the reduced salt. What could it be about Rice Bubbles that needs so much salt? Well I suppose Rice is not a bad medium for growing bacteria.

    My daughter is supposed to have contracted diabetes I from the anti-bodies of a virus attacking the pancreas just after we moved to this area. We then found that the boy who lives over the back fence had also contracted Diabetes I and he and she had been in the same class in the same school in central Sydney, about 30km away.

    I was going to say that I’d take what medical authorities say with a grain of salt, but under the circumstances shall desist.

    The bit the coffee-promoters left out was the possible adverse effects on your blood lipids (LDL/HDL ratio etc). There’s a bit more evidence for this than there is for the Type II diabetes claim. All of it is minor though, and not worth promoting or discouraging.
    ps. Redge – love the rambling ‘let’s talk about sick me’ prose, but um..not sure what the point was.
