A cup of coffee a day may keep retinal damage away, study shows.
According to a study performed by Cornell University, drinking coffee helps prevent deteriorating eyesight and possible blindness from retinal degeneration due to glaucoma, aging and diabetes.

Quote:Raw coffee is, on average, just 1 percent caffeine, but it contains 7 to 9 percent chlorogenic acid (CLA), a strong antioxidant that prevents retinal degeneration in mice

Coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon. I should be brimming with health. Tongue

Amazing, they just keep finding health benefits in coffee. What a coincidence, I'm having some right now Drinking Beverage

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

The only way I can drink coffee is if it's so diluted down with other flavors that it's barely coffee any more. Think peppermint mocha latte from Starbucks...but only in cold weather.

Just never developed a taste for it.

But don't try to pry my ever-present iced tea from my hand. Evil_monster

Huh...

Well it's a good thing my vision degeneration is genetic and practically unstoppable, or else I might have just thought about pushing past my hatred of the taste of coffee.

My dad's eyesight is shit. He's been a coffee addict for 50 years.

I don't drink coffee at all. I'm told that there are other reason that one could go blond.

EDIT: blind.
