DID YOU KNOW THAT human beings never fully experience the “present”? Nope, in reality, we’re always living in the past. Every human being is living at least 80 milliseconds in the past. David Eagleman, neuroscientist and writer at Baylor College of Medicine, believes that our consciousness lags behind actual events and that when you think an event occurs, it has already happened before your brain has a chance to create a cohesive picture of the world for you!

Planning Ahead for Good Health

One of the best ways to eat healthy is to plan ahead. We can do that by stocking our pantries, cabinets and cupboards with healthy foods and options so that when we’re having a moment of weakness we don’t have the option to eat something bad for us. But there’s more we can do to give us that dietary edge.

5 Healthy Reasons To Keep Drinking Coffee

Cynthia Sass, a registered dietitian with master’s degrees in both nutrition science and public health, recently wrote an article on six health benefits of coffee that give permission to coffee lovers to continue the romance.

According to the article, there are six health benefits that give you an excuse to continue drinking coffee are:

1. Coffee contains antioxidants. Though we might not know it, coffee beans are actually the seeds inside a bright red berry. These berries, and their seeds, are high in antioxidants, which help to eliminate free radicals that cause damage and accelerate aging in the body.

2. Coffee appears to decrease the risk of diabetes. A study showed that those with the highest coffee intakes had a 67 percent lower risk of developing diabetes in comparison to non coffee drinkers. And to date, several studies have supported the same link between java drinking and prevention of diabetes.

3. Coffee is tied to lower rates of other diseases. Studies show that those who drink coffee are less likely to experience gallstones, liver cirrhosis, colon cancer, breast and endometrial cancer. Other studies indicate that regular coffee drinkers are up to 80 percent less likely to develop Parkinson’s and the evidence is strong that caffeine plays a protective role.

4. Coffee gives your workout a boost. New research shows that exposing muscle cells to caffeine basically mimics the effects of training. Scientists say this may explain caffeine’s trait of boosting endurance.

5. Coffee may slow aging. Animal studies show that caffeine may offset the loss of muscle strength that occurs with aging. Other animal studies have found that caffeine may prevent brain inflammation, a precursor to cognitive impairment and neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s. The full article is here.

So there you have it. You might just be able to remove coffee from your lists of vices since, as it seems, it might not actually be a vice.
