No surprise to people who work here, obviously, but a lot of people think coffee’s bad for you. Caffeine–no, stop laughing, we’re serious–they think caffeine’s bad for you. We personally attribute this to America’s Puritanical background: that anything that good that isn’t, you know, God or Jesus or something, is evil. But regardless, if you’re a hater, check out part of this Wired article where the latest findings are discussed:
They concluded that the average adult consumes 1,299 milligrams of antioxidants daily from coffee. The closest competitor was tea at 294 milligrams. Rounding out the top five sources were bananas, 76 milligrams; dry beans, 72 milligrams; and corn, 48 milligrams. According to the Agriculture Department, the typical adult American drinks 1.64 cups of coffee daily.
Did you read that? Huh? No, you weren’t hallucinating…coffee kicked bananas’ ASS, baby!
We’re not called coffee achievers for nothing, bub. All hail the Liquid Sleep.
