Drinking a Lot of Coffee Might Help Fight Off the Coronavirus?

If we’d had this info a year ago, we might have been hoarding coffee like we hoarded toilet paper.  A new study at Northwestern found that drinking a lot of coffee might lower your covid risk.

Researchers looked at the eating and drinking habits of 40,000 adults.  And people who averaged at least one cup of coffee a day had a 10% lower risk for Covid-19.  Which seems weird, but apparently coffee has been linked to a lower risk for pneumonia before too.  So it might be for the same reason.

They’re not sure why it seems to make a difference.  But people who ate a lot of vegetables also had a lower risk of developing Covid-19 symptoms.  And people who ate processed meat had a slightly HIGHER risk.  More research is needed though.
