My 'new' boss (a HUGE improvement on my last boss) returned from a trip to Jamaica over the weekend. He brought me some Blue Mountain Coffee.

That is all.

Oh except this little piece I found in my weekly Health Newletter....

Swill away.

Drink to Your Health – With Coffee

Kathleen Doheny for WebMD

Heavy coffee drinkers -- those who drink more than four cups a day -- may cut their
risk of dying from cancers of the mouth and throat by nearly half, according to new
research. "We examined coffee drinking habits in nearly 1 million men and women,"
says Janet Hildebrand, epidemiologist with the American Cancer Society. "Those who
reported drinking at least four cups per day of caffeinated coffee incurred about half
the risk of dying from mouth and throat cancers compared to people who did not drink
caffeinated coffee daily or only drank it occasionally." The study found the risk
reduction of nearly half was similar for those who drank four, five, or six cups of
caffeinated coffee daily. Beyond seven cups, Hildebrand says, there weren't enough
people to gauge the effect on risk accurately. On the other hand, the study found only
a suggestion of a link between those who drank more than two cups of decaf daily. No
benefit was found for tea drinkers.
That link held even when the researchers took into account smoking habits and
alcohol use which are among the strongest risk factors for oral cancers.
About 35,000 new cases of oral cancers are expected in the U.S. this year, with 6,800
deaths, according to the American Cancer Society. Previous research by others has
linked drinking more than four cups of coffee a day to about the same risk reduction in
getting a diagnosis of oral cancer.

Eh, and what's the risk of getting esophageal cancer from coffee-exacerbated GERD?

(Sorry to piss on your Blue Mountain.)

I guess it really depends on what your definition of coffee is. The stuff I drink doubles as MIL-L-63460.

If coffee is responsible for GERD (it's not been thoroughly implicated), I'm gonna go out on a limb and put Blue Mountain way down on the list of acidic coffee blends. It's very mild. Not usually my cup'o'teajoe but this stuff is just chock full of wonderful mellow island flavor.

About the same as dying by comet strike.

I've been at my office for a little over an hour, and I've already had four cups of what is being called coffee.

Meaning it's black and more or less drinkable?

It's black, liquid and it'll wake you up. Also pretty good at stripping caked in carbon in rifles.

It's good for two things: degreasing engines and killin' brain cells.

About the same as dying by comet strike.

So, still higher than my chances of getting mouth cancer as a non-smoker.

Sure, if you drink 4 cups of coffee a day.
