Indulge in Coffee and Green Tea? Good!

February 11 2011

A steamy hot cup of coffee or tea has a particular appeal during these wintry months when wind chills can dip to -20F (like a few nights ago in the Chicago area). Self-indulgent? Guilty pleasure? Here's some good news to balance all those aricles about how bad caffeine can be for you. Two separate articles in January tout the benefits of imbibing those caffeinated beverages: Eight Reasons to Drink Coffee and Protective Properties of Green Tea Still Present After Digestion.

It's interesting that both Yahoo and a U.K. university decided to highlight important cognitive benefits beyond the feel-good sensation of drinking a hot cuppa. Could be they're recognizing the needs of the "boomers and beyond" generation?
