More than eight years of research on over 13,000 subjects suggests that just three hours of TV a day can DOUBLE the risk of an early death! Three hours! That's only like four episodes of Orange Is The New Black!

Coffee is the new hero of the beverage world!
A new study found that men who drink six cups of coffee a day have a lower risk of getting fatal prostate cancer.
Around 48,000 men were studied over the course of 20 years, and researchers found that those who drank coffee were less likely to develop prostate cancer.
Said lead author, Kathryn Wilson:
"Coffee has a lot of different biological effects and several of them seem like they might be relevant for prostate cancer. It's an important source of antioxidants and also has positive effects on glucose metabolism and insulin levels, and it's thought that insulin plays a role in the progression of prostate cancer."
So to all of you coffee drinkers out there — cheers!
