More important, the heavy coffee drinkers were 60 percent less likely than the nondrinkers to develop a lethal form of the disease.

My daily habit a year ago was to read the news with my morning coffee. I felt the entire world was falling apart and getting worse day by day. Then I read some research on the effects of bad news, and made a conscious choice to read uplifting stories... Now I’m excited about all the wonderful things around the world, instead of feeling helpless. When I read the stories on GNN I feel empowered, included, and encouraged to get involved. - Kerrie S., OK
