Time for a coffee break:"R U OK?"

New studies say that a compound found on caffeine could help block cell growth and blood clotting, preventing not only heart disease but also Colon and Skin Cancer, and be effective in fighting other cancer tumors. A key biochemical process crucial to the functioning of an enzyme helps play a role in the survival and movement of cells.

Lyrics (translated by Ana C. Antunes):
"A good coffee, we can never forget
(here and there, now and then)
Drink a coffee and no sweat
It will happen!!"

The discovery of coffee on helping treating such diseases can become revolutionary. See, for example, cases, such as people who see themselves as more involved into relationships and cared for and are objectively well integrated in positive social groups who may feel well protected against episodes of major depression. The impact of low social support on risk for major depression are more pronounced in detriment of people who feel excluded from the “milieu”, as much as the sensation caused by the whole society of segregating certain types to their circle. As coffee makes no enemies, and it is as universal and as pleasant as any simple hobby, available to all age group, regardless of sex and race, it actually could graduate people to be more able to establish a "communion-active" feedback. So integration such as “would you mind joining me to a cup of coffee?” or “I will meet you at the coffee house” and even a small discipline figured as a five minutes chat at the coffee break, might add some significant time to your every day errands. But like all things, moderation is a must. As much as coffee makes you feel upbeat and stimulated, an overdoses such as more than two small cups a day, may not keep the doctors away... So next time someone asks you out to go drink a harmless small cup of coffee, you might as well accept it!!

Just one last note: The impact of this research on social behaviour is yet to be proved. So prove it by inviting a friend to a coffee today and ask, "Are you ok?"
