I am a confessing daily consumer of dark, divine coffee! You will find me at 5:30am pondering over thoughts to record in my journal, powered by my mug of organic coffee. But just to be clear, coffee can be praised as a health tonic! The beans are rich in antioxidants according to the Mayo Clinic. It may help guard against cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and Type 2 diabetes. And all the coffee-swooners said, "Wohoo!!!" It is important to note that non-organic farmed coffee plants, along with the beans are heavily sprayed by chemicals during the growing process. It is best if you can swing it, to purchase organic coffee- save yourself the scary side effects of pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides! Coffee enjoyed in moderation is a delicious way to help prevent some cancers. Anti-cancer protection in a daily cup of happiness:
♡Endometrial cancer. Research indicates that women who drink coffee regularly are 25% less likely to develop endometrial cancer.
♡Prostate cancer. Both high test and decaf coffee are particularly effective at shooing away one of the most dangerous and aggressive kinds of cancer - prostate cancer.
♡The most common skin cancer. Basal cell carcinoma research shows that quality coffee acts to shut down these rebel cells (cells that have a high risk of mutation).

* Beware: Watch out for flavored coffees with creams & syrups! A 16oz Starbucks White Mocha slams you with 540 calories & 76 grams of sugar! Can you say Diabetes?

♡How to Pick the RIGHT Cup? Your preference pick should be based on:
