Do 7 cups of decaffeinated coffee count? I love coffee, especially the really robust variety (my grandfather used to grow the local coffee called 'barako') but regular caffeine intake gives me Intensity 8 headaches. At supermarkets I stand next to the coffee grinder and sniff the aroma of freshly ground coffee beans, but woefully I have to be content with the dreadful decaf.

With incomplete info about the journal on colon cancer, I would assume that both men and women are equally exposed to the risk, except that women coffee drinkers reduce the risks by 50%.
Does it mention anything about men beer drinkers reducing colon cancer risk by 50%.
What do you say Rollie?

dear cora, ay naku,pinatawa na naman ninyo was not mentioned if it's decaf or regular coffee.i assume both,since they just said coffee.but like you, i also love coffee,i prefer regular though,especially ground. about men beer drinkers,that would be my next assignment,i have to do a research on that.but until then you can enjoy one or two bottles of san miguel the way my nephew had me taste a bottle of michaelob ultra last night.i dont know if i spelled it right,but that was the best beer i ever tried.i didn't finish the whole bottle though 'cause i was feeling dizzy already.on our next reunion i'll see if i can take some with me or if not i can try the duty free in subic,what can you say rollie,ok ba yun?
