Coffee Tea?! My Coffee Secret

Image
NCDT (National Coffee Data Trends) have reported that as much as 67% of Americans drink coffee on a daily basis.  That amount increases to 75% when determining the amount of adults who drink coffee on a weekly basis.  One lesser know fact is that the global coffee market is expected to reach 182 billion by the year 2030.  What is it about that little dark bean, available in so many varieties, that cause people to be unable to go about their daily lives without it?  It must be the flavor as some people swear by coffees made in various countries.  If it's not Columbian or Jamaican coffee, some will not even touch the mug.  Then there are the coffee chain fan clubs who must have their daily Starbucks or Tim Horton's signature espresso in the morning.  Let's be real, the taste of coffee isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when dark.  Quite possibly, it may be the alertness that coffee provides after consumption which have some people hooked.   The alertness and

A preview of a full length movie called “Plandemic” premiered near the end of May and went viral across social media platforms. The movie received an absurd amount of criticism from medical professionals, journalists and other health officials. The movie was also a conspiracy theorist’s gold as it provided an introspective and thought provoking alternative explanation for the COVID-19 crisis. Dr. Judy Mikovits: The Blacklisted Researcher Plandemic offered viewers a documentary style approach to understanding truths and falsities concerning the current pandemic. Dr. Judy Mikovits sat down with Mikki Willis to reveal truths concerning corruption that went on in the world of science and the current players who are at the front of it all. Dr. Judy revealed that she was blackballed from a field that she grew to love and diligently worked in. This was of course, the field of research. At one point in time, she was accused of taking artifacts from a lab that she worked in and was char
