Multiple studies have shown that drinking coffee is good for your health. It has been shown to be associated with a lower risk of several types of cancer, cirrhosis of the liver, cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes and dementia. Now a new study indicates that it is associated with a lower risk of multiple sclerosis.  Per the article:

Researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Johns Hopkins University in Maryland and the University of California, Berkeley, looked at two studies. In both studies, people were asked about their coffee consumption and how long they had been drinking coffee for. The researchers then estimated coffee intake at and before the start of MS symptoms in those who developed the disease, and compared this with healthy groups. The results showed that the risk of MS was consistently higher among people who drank fewer cups of coffee every day in both studies, even after taking into account other factors that might influence the results.

I forget, John, are you a caffeine addict like many of the rest of us?  You turn up so many of these about coffee.  Of course, as a caffeine addict, myself, I'm more prone to notice when they do turn up.

Between my coffee, my bud and my organic pomegranate juice, I should be good to go!
