The first coffee of the day is a make-or-break moment. A robust, flavorful cup can clear the mind, cheer the soul, and boost self-confidence. A watery, bitter brew almost guarantees gloom. More than one billion people start their day by drinking a cup of coffee, making it the most popular drink worldwide, after water, and the coffee industry second in the worldwide economy, after oil. However, most people still consider coffee a guilty pleasure. One reason is that many think coffee contains only caffeine and is detrimental to health. In fact, coffee is far more than caffeine-it contains a complex mixture of bioactive compounds that can affect health positively, such as antioxidants, minerals, niacin, and lactones. This book debunks the myths surrounding coffee and proves that coffee in moderation can actually prevent many diseases. Extensive research has been conducted in the last twenty years, but the findings have been relegated to highly specialized journals which are inaccessible to most readers. Now, coffee drinkers rejoice-this book articulates the massive body of research that's been done in a way that everyone can understand and enjoy! Coffee has been and continues to be an important part of human history-economically, physiologically, and socially. It is the favorite drink of many celebrities and innovators, such as Britney Spears, Halle Berry, Jennifer Jones, Bill Gates, Robin Williams, Kevin Spacey, Jon Stewart, Dave Chapelle, and Madonna, as well as numerous historical figures, like Benjamin Franklin, Napoleon, Lord Byron, Chopin, Bach, Beethoven, Voltaire, Casanova, Goethe, Hemingway, Picasso, Balzac, and Wyatt Earp. There are lots of reasons to drink coffee every day, as the millions of customers who flock to coffeehouses to order a "special," double espresso or latte will attest. Wake up, smell and read all about coffee. 101 Reasons to Drink Coffee without Guilt provides an accessible, engaging, and illuminating exploration of this beloved beverage. Better than this book, only a coffee talk with the doc.
