“coffee drinkers may be less likely to develop type 2 diabetes, stroke, depression, death from any cause, and neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s”

What's ironic is that I know a dozen people with type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s and these people won't start the day without a cup of coffee. Most of the articles I always read about the benefits of coffee is from 4-5 cups, which I think is just an over stimulate at that point.

I honestly don't know many tea drinkers at least here in the USA, so it's hard to compare.

I know quite a few people with type II diabetes and they won't start their day without a bag of fast food.

I start my day with a cup of coffee with heavy cream, followed by cottage cheese and blueberries. ;)
