Coffee May Help Women With Depression

by admin on September 29, 2011

Great article published by Bloomberg on  study which shows that drinking regular coffee helps combat depression in women. The study states that women who drank four or greater cups of coffee a day decreased their risk of depression by 20 percent over women who drank one cup per day. This study adds to the numerous other studys about the benefit’s of coffee. The study’s findings applied only to coffee and did not include caffeinated sodas or energy drinks. The study also obviously does not apply to decaf coffee.

While drinking my morning cup of Yauco Selecto I came across a very interesting almost unbelievable article. Seems a group of scientitsts are working on printing food. I am not talking about pictures of food but actual edible food!.

There are a group of researchers at the Cornell Creative Machines Lab who are experimenting with the idea that one could create real food with printers. Ok these are not the ordinary printers we currently use they are 3-D “food printers”. The thought is that these 3-D food printers would eventually be a common household or restaurant appliance like your current stove, refrigerator or microwave would be.

The technology uses inks which are edible and what they call “digital blueprints” the current printer can make precision treats from sugar cookies to other treats that take various forms.  Right now everything this magical printer creates is raw so in the future when you want that cup of coffee will you fire up the printer instead? no idea.. but I am going back to my Yauco Selecto made the good old fashioned way.
