Come Hell and Hot Water

June 29, 2009 at 09:50 3 comments

There’s nothing quite like a nice cup of coffee on a hot day like today. I do enjoy coffee — in almost any form and most certainly regardless of the weather — and some people would even say that I overindulge and that it’s not good for me.

It turns out that they might be wrong after all.

The European Journal of Clinical Nutrition recently published a study led by Dr. Carrie Ruxton that shows that coffee and tea do not lead to dehydration, that they function as a source of anti-oxidants for the body, and that tea can even help prevent heart attacks.

In other words, I don’t have to feel guilty about having a fourth cup now after lunch.

The only thing that might cause concern among enthusiastic caffeine addicts, is the fact that the study was partially financed by the United Kingdom Tea Council.

    Never trust studies? Do you have any research to back up that claim?
