Lots of Big News on the Health Front !!!
Coffee May cut Our risk of cirrhosis.

"These data support the hypothesis that there is an ingredient in coffee that protects against cirrhosis, especially alcoholic cirrhosis," concluded the report published in the Archives of Internal Medicine."

"Even if coffee is protective, the primary approach to reduction of alcoholic cirrhosis is avoidance or cessation of heavy alcohol drinking," the researchers said. As they winked and nodded at each other and giggled. OK, I made that last part up. But everyone knows they have to warn all us Rubes out here to not extrapolate the data ourselves.

My Liver just Smiled at me, lit up a Camel and winked. This is good right? Right?

In other news - Eating pizza 'cuts cancer risk'
How cool is that? Pizza and Beer are good for you. If you don't mind dying of a heart attack.

Of course, one should keep in mind that these news items are reported by CNN and the BBC respectively. Both of which have a level of accuracy to their reporting that may cause you to reconsider buying a tavern that sells pizza. Just something to think about.
