My October nutrition program was a “Conversation on Coffee and Cancer”. This year, a judge in California ruled that coffee vendors need to include cancer warnings on their products. Of course this put coffee drinkers in a frenzy, so of course I needed to set the record straight! I broke down the aspects of this decision and discussed the current research which shows that not only is coffee is safe to drink, but it also comes with cancer-fighting antioxidants. We also got to taste-test several different roasts thanks to Counterculture Culture Coffee and Melitta Coffee.
