Still more good coffee news!

I’m always pointing out evidence showing that things presumed to be bad for you – booze, coffee, massive internet porn consumption etc. – are actually good for you. Here’s the latest (from the NY TImes.)

People who live on the Greek island of Ikaria are known to have remarkably high life expectancies, and researchers have been studying them carefully to learn why. Now a new report suggests that one reason may be the coffee they drink.

He and his colleagues found that older islanders who drank the boiled coffee had better functioning endotheliums — the layer of cells that line blood vessels.

Of course, it’s not just the coffee. The people of Ikaria live rather chill lives.

“It has to do with their way of living,” Dr. Siasos said. “People sleep over eight hours a night, there is increased socializing, and they have much less stress than people in Athens.”

Further evidence that modern society is doing everything wrong and aliens should enslave our planet.
