To Your Health: Morning Joe, Good News, Bad News!

To Your Health: Morning Joe, Good News, Bad News!

Dr. Alan Safdi, a world-renowned internist and gastroenterologist with encyclopedic knowledge of mind-body wellness and preventative medicine, posts on Telluride Inside… and Out under the banner of “To Your Health.” His blogs feature the most current information in his field: health, wellness and longevity.

This summer, Dr. Alan returns with his popular Live Longer Retreat wellness intensives. The dates so far are July 21 – July 29, 2019 ; Aug. 11 – Aug. 17, 2019; and Sept. 15 – Sept. 21, 2019. For further information, email or go to Safdi’s Telluride Longevity Institute website.

This week, Dr. Alan talks about your morning cup of Joe, addressing the good news (there’s lots, better than half and half) and the bad news surrounding coffee.

And for further info about the Java jive on headaches, go here.

Ethiopia is the origin of both arabica and robusta beans, but they each now grow in a variety of different countries across the world map, especially in Latin America, Central America, Africa and parts of Asia.

Arabica beans are primarily grown in Brazil, but can also be found in countries like Colombia, Honduras and Mexico.

Robusta also grows in Brazil, but is even more common in Vietnam. Other robusta coffee growing regions include Indonesia, India, and Uganda.

Regardless of the place of origin of the beans, coffee is widely regarded an essential morning tradition, one that fuels the start of their day. In fact, according to online sources, worldwide people spend approximately $40 billion on coffee annually.

That’s a whole lot of moola to shell out for java – especially without knowing the impact on your body.

Listen to Dr. Alan’s podcast to find out what’s true and what’s false about all the claims made about the healing power (or not) of coffee.
