Drink café au lait, live forever

I've said all of this before, but it's worth repeating: Coffee and whole milk are good for you. Let's go to the video tape.

A study of about a half million people found that those who drank two to three cups of coffee a day had about a 12 percent lower risk of death compared to non-coffee drinkers. This included decaf, although the scientists confirmed that decaf is strictly for girly men.

I've also told you about milk over the years, but you didn't listen, so I'm telling you again: Enjoying full-fat milk, yogurt, cheese and butter is unlikely to send people to an early grave, according to new research by The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.

The study found no significant link between dairy fats and cause of death or, more specifically, heart disease and stroke -- two of the country's biggest killers often associated with a diet high in saturated fat. In fact, certain types of dairy fat may help guard against having a severe stroke, the researchers reported.

So there.

Here's how they make café au lait in New Orleans. Of course they have it with beignets. Recent research has found that enjoying beignets with your café au lait increases your lifespan by 123 percent. Native New Orleanians routinely live to be 183 or 184, depending on the humidity at the hour of their birth.
