Have a Cup of Joe

beansNearly 400 million cups of coffee are downed each day in America. That’s a lotta lattes!

It’s our favorite fix, and there’s more of it than ever: Coffee shops are the fastest-growing restaurant business, according to the Specialty Coffee Association of America. Meanwhile, the number of people who own single-serve coffeemakers has shot up by 900 percent since the first ones hit shelves seven years ago. As long as you’re not guzzling it by the gallon, coffee is one habit you don’t have to break; some experts event consider it a superfood (see our previous blog for more info).

“Coffee contains compounds that have anticancer benefits. We’re not even close to learning its full potential,” says neuroscientist Chuanhai Cao, PhD, a researcher at the University of South Florida. So feel free to read the good news over a cupful.
