Coffee: First the Good News

9:30 AM -- Monday morning coffee news from Reuters:

    It may seem unlikely, but simply clutching a warm cup of coffee can bring on a flood of warm feelings, U.S. researchers said on Thursday in a finding that suggests a strong link between physical and emotional warmth.
Unlikely indeed! Warmth makes you feel better? Who knew? But, as always with True Science, there's a fly in the ointment. As The Local reports:

    Women who drink a lot of coffee may see their breasts become more petite, according to the results of a new Swedish study.

    Around half of all women possess a gene shown to link breast size to coffee intake.

    "Drinking coffee can have a major effect on breast size," said Helena Jernström, a lecturer in experimental oncology at Lund University.
Fortunately, drinking lots of beer counteracts this effect.
