Drink to Your Health

We have already spoken about how green tea may help against prostate cancer, as well as other health conditions.

Just the other day we spoke about the possible health benefits of pomegranate juice.

We’ve talked at great length about wine drinking and health.

Now it seems that coffee may help against colon cancer. And although you may not be able to get all your daily fiber from coffee, it apparently does contain some soluble fiber. And is it really true that caffeine protects the elderly from heart disease?

Drinking tomato juice may prevent blood clots in those with diabetes by thinning the blood?

Of course whenever you are drinking anything it is a good idea to be aware of the calories you are consuming. If you drink a lot of juice, for example, that is a lot of calories, which have to be accounted for somehow – either by weight gain, or exercise, etc. The idea is to take an already healthy diet and fit in some healthy drinks. For example, if you are drinking two glasses of wine per day, you might consider drinking just one glass plus one glass of pomegranate juice. Be sure to watch those calories.
