*Tring Tring* It’s 5 a.m, and it’s my friend. Can you come with me to the hospital today? He needs me to give him company to a hospital. A hospital, I reiterated? Yes, I’m afraid of’em.
I found a great doctor for him using the online appointment feature on Buzzhospitals.com
I can’t believe he took me to the hospital only to wait for him. He is in the doctor’s cabin. *Sigh*
Wait! Suddenly a smell catches my attention. I’m familiar with it? Have I tasted it before? Oh c’mon, its distinct and enticing taste is the main reason that I pry myself out of the bed each morning. So, what is it? It’s an eye-opening, addictive, delectable beverage that is consumed by an estimated 100 million Americans daily.
Oh, it’s coffee.
Dragging my sleepy self, I went looking for a coffee shop around the hospital’s premises, and then ordered a cappuccino and picked up a newspaper. As I was flipping the pages, I saw an article on our very dear Coffee citing its benefits.
Well, I do know that apart from this caffeinated beverage’s eye-opening abilities and highly addictive taste, this amazing drink has got numerous hidden benefits. But, I had never known that coffee had these bundle of benefits:
Nothing is sadder than seeing an aging loved one drastically losing their mental sharpness! The article cited a recent study that unveiled that participants who drank three to five cups of coffee per day had about a 65% decreased chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease or dementia later on in life.
It’s a little known fact that sipping one or two cups of coffee per day could have a significantly reduced risk of cardiovascular disease-related death. A Japanese study of more than 76,000 participants revealed that men consuming one to two cups of coffee daily reduced their risk of dying from a cardiovascular disease by as much as 38%.
A National Institutes of Health – AARP Diet and Health study of more than 400,000 people exposed that drinking coffee might lower your risk of death. Male participants, between 1995 and 2008, drinking just cup of coffee daily reduced their risk of death by 6%. The greatest reduction of death risk was 12% in the group drinking four to five cups.
A surprising fact that many people feel rejuvenated following a coffee break and there may be a reason why. Norwegian researchers noticed 48 people performing office work and found that those who consumed coffee only declared a pain-intensity level of 41. On the other hand, participants who did not have coffee reported having a score of 55. Amazing, right?
I think someone is calling out for me. Oh, it’s my friend. Finally, he’s done with his consultation with the doctor. But, let me thank him for bringing me here at this hospital, otherwise I wouldn’t have known about the bundle of benefits that coffee offers. Thanks, my buddy! Let’s have a cup of coffee.
