Hi all,

Here's another interesting tidbit about possible health benefits of coffee:

<<Coffee May Help Prevent Gallstones By ERIC FIDLER, Associated Press Writer

CHICAGO (AP) _ A few cups of regular coffee per day might help prevent gallstones.
A study found that men who drank two to three cups a day had a 40 percent lower risk of gallstones than those who did not drink regular coffee. Men who drank four or more cups a day had a 45 percent lower risk.>>

For the complete story, visit:

Apparently, while the docters aren't recommending someone start drinking coffee just to prevent gallstones, seems this may make it okay to continue drinking it. And, for all you caffeine junkies, only caffeinated coffee has any positive effect. :-)

Now, if I can just find a study confirming the benefits of drinking tons of Coke daily....
