It’s understandable that given our shaky economy, many of us are taking a good look at how we spend our money and trying to figure out ways we can cut back on spending. Mostly we want an easy way to cut corners without giving up too much. Let’s face it, saving money is one thing, but we can’t give up all our guilty pleasures and indulgences, right?
Research is now finding that when it comes to your teeth, the best thing to drink is brewed tea. While sugary and acidic drinks, such as fruit juices and soda, promote irreversible tooth erosion, brewed tea has no erosive effect on teeth, and the antioxidants found in brewed tea provide a bountiful of health benefits. Tea is loaded with natural antioxidants, which, research has shown, are thought to decrease incidence of cancer, heart disease, and type II diabetes.
For many of us, coffee is a big part of our daily routine. It’s the first drink we have in the morning. It’s our wake-me-up, pick-me-up. And many of us probably take our good-tasting cups of coffee for granted. But for astronauts traveling in space, a good cup of coffee has been hard, if not impossible, to come by. And when you are as far away from home as the astronauts are, especially for long periods of time in cramped quarters, it’s the simple things, the familiar things that make life in space easier. This recently prompted two astronauts to search for a way to enjoy a decent cup of coffee in space.

While coffee has had its share of negatives in the past, new studies are now finding that your daily java actually offers a lot of positive health benefits. According to Stacy Beeson, R.D., a wellness dietitian at St. Luke's Boise Medical Center in Boise, Idaho, "Coffee comes from plants, which have helpful phytochemicals that act as antioxidants.” Some studies indicate coffee drinkers have a lower risk of developing type II diabetes. One reason is that coffee contains antioxidants, substances that may protect against the effects of free radicals that can damage cells. Some of these antioxidants increase insulin sensitivity, thus helping to regulate insulin in the body. A recent Harvard University study of 126,000 coffee drinkers over an 18 year period found that drinking coffee cut the risk of type 2 diabetes in women by 30 percent and in men by 54%. The popular drink is also being credited for cutting the risks of heart disease, Parkinson's disease, cirrhosis and gallstones, as well as some cancers, including colon and ovarian. And coffee’s antioxidants may also play a role in reducing heart disease, especially in women.
