Drinking More Coffee May Undo Liver Damage From Booze ( 182

schwit1 writes: Drinking more coffee might help reduce the kind of liver damage that's associated with overindulging in food and alcohol, a review of existing studies suggests. Researchers analyzed data from nine previously published studies with a total of more than 430,000 participants and found that drinking two additional cups of coffee a day was linked to a 44% lower risk of developing liver cirrhosis.

Just to be clear, there is no innate natural law that we are all guaranteed free speech. Throughout history people have silenced others that they disagree with, by many means up to and including killing them. In the United States, what is meant when we say we are guaranteed to a right of free speech is limited to being *mostly* guaranteed that the government is not supposed to interfere with our right to free speech. It doesn't apply to other individuals or groups. If you stand on someone's private property (including their online property) and spout hatred toward them there is nothing in the law to keep them from kicking you out.

If I'm walking down the hall at work and somebody offers me a free donut, there's a pretty good chance I'd take it even if it's not my favorite kind. But put that very same donut for sale at a typical donut price, then I'd be much less likely to purchase it because likely it's not the flavor I want and/or I don't really feel like a donut at that time, at least not enough to part with cash for it.

But does eating that donut fill you up and make you decide to not buy a donut yourself when you otherwise would have? Then it's still a lost sale.
