Coffee And Your Health

If you are a coffee drinker, you no doubt have asked yourself how much coffee is it safe for you to consume on a daily basis. This is not surprising since so much has been blamed on coffee. Heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, you name it. At one time or another, coffee has been made to blame. Here's a new question that you may have never asked yourself: is coffee ever good for you? The answer may surprise you. Here is a statistic to ponder: did you know that there are over 160 million coffee drinkers in the Unites States alone? In terms of consumption, the average American consumes 8.8 lbs. of coffee per year. But consider this: the world leader in terms of consumption is Finland which comes in at nearly 30 lbs per year. That's a lot of coffee! Another statistic is that there have been well over 19,000 studies done to analyze the effects of coffee. Now, studies can often be skewed to show whatever the author wants, but here is what is generally agreed: consuming 2 to 3 cups of coffee per day is often considered more beneficial than harmful. But, since everyone's body is different, we all tolerate things differently. In some people even the smallest amount of caffein can cause nervousness and irritebility. Consider also that a person may consume caffein in other ways besides coffee. And often without knowing about it. For sonme other interesting coffee articles, check out http://www.fmcoffee.com. A little known fact is that coffee contains antioxidants which have been shown to imporve oveall health. Here is a short list of some benefits which have been shown to be present in coffee: * Reduce symptoms of Parkinson's Disease * Antibacterial ingredients * Reduce the risk of developing gallstones * Preserve mental accuity * Reduce risk of developing type 2 Diabetes (if you have diabetes, reduce your consumption * If you are free of hypertension, coffee will not likely produce it * Headache relief * Reduce the risk of some types of cancer * Improve physical endurance This is not to say that there are not some serious negative results of drinking coffee. It is nice to know, however, that a cup or two in the morning may not hurt you. But how do you know for sure? Be sure to talk to your health professional and get their advice on consuming coffee. They (and you) know what conditions you may have that you need to be careful of when it comes to coffee. Then do you research and, if appropriate, enjoy your coffee.

10 Reasons a Digital Camera Is Your Best Buy by Jim Wilson

Choosing a digital camera to capture those all illusive moments should be a well thought out purchase. Selecting a digital camera is by far your best choice. A digital camera can enhance your treasured snapshots by allowing you to make changes and improve your clarity. There are at least 10 reasons to choose digital:
1. A digital camera stores your images in pixels that make for better resolution of your pictures.
2. Having the ability to delete bad snapshots without having to pay for bad photos.
3. Digital cameras allow you to enhance the images before printing, this adds more user control over the end results of your pictures.
4. The obvious is no film to buy, you are always locked and loaded for that perfect picture taking moment. There's nothing more frustrating when you want to snap a picture that just won't wait and you're out of film.
5. Instant viewing of the picture you want to see immediately after taking it. Nothing is more satisfying than to be able to see your picture taking handiwork, immediately after taking it.
6. Digital cameras come in different pixel counts. The higher the pixel count the greater the clarity or resolution your pictures will turn out. Higher is definitely better and worth the investment.
7. No need to squint through a hole the size of a straw, digital cameras with an LCD screen on the back is perfect for all occasions and saves the strain on your eyes.
8. Digital cameras are pc compatible which allows you to store, print, or enhance from your favorite Photoshop or Image program on your computer, before printing.
9. Having a camera picture storage capacity with over one hundred images is more than enough for a single event regardless of your snap-happiness.
10. You can snap up your pictures, upload to your pc in minutes, go online and move them to a local Walgreens or local photo developing shop with online service and you can have professional photos, you have taken, then available for pick-up within one hour. What more could you asked from a digital camera. Go Digital!
When it comes to choosing a digital camera, there are still a wide range of options, so visit a reputable camera outlet before making your selection. Don't buy on price alone, some options are well worth the investment. A digital camera is a well thought out investment when you consider the pictures you capture are priceless. Ask about rechargeable batteries also, having an upper hand on battery life and control will avoid the 'dead battery' syndrome.
