Drink That Coffee

A new study shows that people who drink coffee may live longer.  So, as I write this, I am sipping on the fountain of youth.   The researchers were able to tease this nugget out after they first realized that  coffee drinkers were more likely to die at any given time.   That is when they realized that they also tended to smoke, drink more alcohol, eat more red meat and exercise less than non-coffee-drinkers.   As the referenced article states, “Once researchers took those things into account, a clear pattern emerged: Each cup of coffee per day nudged up the chances of living longer.”   Clear pattern?  Dude, I love coffee but if that is a clear pattern then I am Juan Valdez.  Damn, now I am stressed.  I need another cup of coffee with whiskey in it, while I site here and smoke and eat beef jerky.
