How to celebrate National Coffee Day
There are two types of people in the world: those who love coffee and those who really love coffee. Today, we can put our differences aside and unite in mutual admiration of this wondrous elixir because it’s National Coffee Day. You can celebrate by getting a free or discounted cup at many of your favorite shops. Or, if you don’t want to wait in even longer lines than usual, you can celebrate by upgrading your home coffee station.
Is it okay to drink coffee every day?
Coffee is like eggs. The medical community seems to vacillate back and forth on whether it’s okay to have coffee in your diet. Right now, being a coffee drinker is a good thing. As long as you don’t exceed 400 milligrams of caffeine in a day, which is roughly four cups, the Mayo Clinic says that coffee may offer some protection against Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes, liver disease, heart attacks and more. The bottom line is “Your coffee habit is probably fine and may even have some benefits.” So go out and celebrate National Coffee Day. You’ve earned it.
