Nowadays I only drink tea. It's so much healthier than soft drinks. I love my earl grey tea in the mornings

This thread reminds of that woman that died because she drank too much coke: Natasha Harris Died From Drinking Too Much Coke - huffingtonpost.com. She also had other bad eating habits, but nonetheless it shows that coke/soda ain't good for you.

Check out my new BLOG!

Too much of anything is bad. I can't believe that anyone could drink two gallons of coke a day. That much sugar would kill anyone!

No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

I have only one weakness when it comes to (what here in the U.S. Midwest is called) pop. That is Diet Mountain Dew. When I was on pain killers this summer and couldn't drink wine, I got some regular, the kind with sugar. Didn't like it. TOO sweet. I don't drink a lot of it, though. I buy a six-pack and that lasts me a month, then I don't buy another six pack for another month!

Half of the medium-chain fatty acids are composed of lauric acid which is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal. Coconut milk can help boost the immune system. Coconut milk is also soy-free, gluten-free and nut-free.

Didn't I also read somewhere that you can drink too much of it. What happens when you do that?
You get fat, as with anything else you consume too much of. Coconut milk is very high in calories

Perhaps we should stop eating and drinking altogether. Oh, no. Then we'd starve to death. Even water is bad for you if you drink too much.

The secret to slimness and healthy eating must be to eat and drink some of everything but not too much of anything. And as for coffee, the Mayo Clinic site has an article which says that in moderation (one or two cups a day) coffee can be quite good for you. Apparently, it appears to protect against Parkinson's disease, type 2 diabetes and liver cancer and that it contains high levels of antioxidants.

I only drink it as a treat as I like it black and strong enough to stand up on its own without the cup and if I drink more than one cup a day I'm swinging from the light-fittings!
