  1. studies also said coffee was bad for you (several years back) but follow up studies contradicted those findings and suddenly coffee is good for you. oddly enough, when they removed smokers, diabetics, and other unhealthy subjects from the coffee study (seriously-that’s what the change/new studies did) and isolated coffee’s better qualities (riboflavins (sp) ) coffee was deemed healthy for you. I’ll take my chances and keep taking vitamins. a new study is right around the corner that will contradict this one and claim vitamins are the best things for you!
