too much coffee
you know you've had too much coffee when............
you wake up......
jump out of bed......
& get ready for a new day........
then you look at the clock & it's only 3.30am.
yesterday, when i sent in the car for the regular service, i had a cup of white coffee from the dispenser. pretty good coffee, i'd say.
then when i collected the car in the evening, i had another cup of the same.
and in between, i've also had my usual 2 cups at work.
so, to recap, coffee is good because it:
reduces the risk of Parkinsonism, cardiovascular disease, colonic cancer & gallstones.
but coffee is bad because it is:
associated with osteoporosis, reduced fertility in women & poor sleep patterns.
unlike smoking which has no good outcomes, coffee has both good & not-so-good effects. in such a case, i would, and should, practise moderation.
so, here's good health to all in the new year & beyond!
