According to an academic study released at a recent meeting of the American Chemical Society, coffee is really good for you. As PhysOrg.com described,
that steaming cup of java is also the number one source of antioxidants in the U.S. diet, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Scranton (Pa.)
Well, that either means that Americans have no other real antioxidants (and lots of free radicals) or that coffee is hardly the evil toxin that the media have in most cases made it out to be. So drink up, America. At $6 a cup for a Starbucks-type double latte, at least you’re putting something healthy into those stomachs of yours.
