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

Halle Berry is one of Hollywood's most well known women who has starred in many of box office topping movies. Halle Berry is an ageless woman. One would never believe that she will be turning 54 next month. Halle was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and revealed her diagnosis to the New York Times in 2006.

A study led by Jessica Furner-Pardoe at the University of Warwick, has produced astounding results regarding the issue of antibiotic resistant bacteria. A few years ago, Jessica and her team stumbled across an ancient natural remedy, which consisted of a concoction of garlic, onion, bile salts and wine. The remedy was originally written in an old English medical text called, Bald’s Leechbook . Several batches of the garlic and onion cocktail were used to form a salve which was named Bald's eyesalve. In a prior study, fellow colleague and microbiologist, Dr. Freya Harrison found the ancient remedy to be effective against biofilms of Staphylococcus aureus. The current study by Furner-Pardoe led to the discovery that the remedy was also effective against other antibiotic resistant bacteria such as Acinetobacter baumannii, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, S. epidermidis and S. pyogenes. Dr. Harrison believes that the salve is an effective remedy for treating diabetic ulcers. "W
