CBS Morning Show Report on Coffee

This morning there was a report on the CBS Morning Show that talks about a recent study that showed a higher incident of death among men who drank 4 or more cups of coffee a day.  I am one of those people who drink 4 or more cups of coffee a day, so I wondering if I should perhaps cut back on my coffee consumption.  Surprisingly, the study indicated that at 3 cups of coffee a day, there wasn’t a higher incident of death.

In thinking about my daily routine and lifestyle, I’ve decided that coffee is a simple pleasure that I’m probably going to continue to enjoy.  I don’t smoke, I exercise everyday.  I rarely drink alcohol and when I do its only beer or wine.  I maintain a vegan diet and try to minimize the amount of stress in my life.

This may prove to be a bad decision, time will tell.  I take full responsibility for my health and well-being.  I don’t want the government to monitor and restrict my ability to drink coffee (as Mayor Michael Bloomberg has attempted to do with soda in New York City).  I believe it is each individuals responsibility to make conscious health choices for themselves.
