We're constantly being told that we shouldn't eat certain foods if we want to live past next Tuesday. Eggs, chocolate, whole milk -- they've all been given the thumbs down before the thumbs up. This article from Salon has a fun list of foods that were once considered death warrants that are now seen as just dandy to eat.
Coffee is once again on the good list. A recent study by the National Cancer Institute, as detailed in this article from Medical News Today, actually says drinking coffee could reduce your chance of getting melanoma.
That's this week, anyway. Someone is bound to come out with a new study detailing coffee ills. So we should take all of this with a grain of salt. Or, as the Salon article suggests, as many grains of salt as we want.
