the last of fall

With Halloween comes the end of fall. At least it seems like it in Michigan. Happy end of Autumn!

Find what you want

At any given time someone is out there conducting a study about what is bad for you. At the same time somewhere else someone is conducting the same study on the same thing only why it is good for you. One example, Coffee. Is it bad for you? Or good for you? I just read that an Alzheimer's study was done in mice. The Alzheimer's symptoms were directly reduced when the mice were given coffee. The article goes on to say that five cups of coffee may treat as well as prevent memory loss. Five cups of coffee. I know someone who is trying to stop drinking coffee because three cups everyday were going to cause cancer.

I decided that in moderation, everything is good. Do I want potato chips? Yes. Are they bad for me? Only when I eat the entire bag. Are they healthy for me? As a serving of vegetables, yes. The same goes for coffee. Now that I drink it, I don't plan on giving it up anytime soon.

I just thought I'd share that in case you were thinking of giving up coffee because it's bad for you.
