I get emails from a dr.william campbell douglass and there has been recent studies indicating coffee helps your health.. Right here.
caffeine in coffee blocks a key biochemical called adenosine that is produced in large quantities during strenuous exercise - which greatly reduces
pain and muscle soreness, according to a recent University of Georgia study published in the Journal of Pain. Your morning "cuppa joe" is also

antioxidants as 3 fresh oranges.
