Alisa Williams, managing editor for the Spectrum website, reviews the North American Division Year-end Meetings. We also discuss her thoughts on the recent Annual Council drama and how that will impact the upcoming 2020 General Conference Session. Finally, there’s #GossipJuice talk.
Why do you feel discouraged with GC ?
Based on what ?
And why is NAD uplifting ?
A child can be discouraged if the parents don’t allow the child to have a video game
like to add being in the world and seeing how it is coffee is no different to cocaine or heroine
and yes I have helped my Adventist brother that was on heroine
so why don’t we let youth shoot up and do a few lines of cocaine at youth meetings
George wants a debate
I know gym trainers people on cocktails of sudafed to caffeine and all the above related steroids and Gh and drugs and baristas and roasters that sell it and won’t touch it and I cycle and now pro tour teams some off the best athletes won’t use it tho drinking coffee was a huge part of cycling culture .
It may get a bit technical for you . Blood and vo2 max efforts and dehydration and weight loss and water retention
Oh and george its the most sprayed fruit with pesticide product on the planet
And yes I know contractor crop dusters pilots on the big money.
Some small roasters I know they find it hard to get good organic fruit and its become so lucrative that some have purchased farms to secure the product and then have quality control but then there is the risk of drought and plant diseases and asset liability
C. W. Post has been accused of stealing several of Kellogg’s recipes, including Kellogg’s Caramel Coffee. He invented the idea of coffee nerves. E.G. White eagerly bought the idea. (Not literally, unfortunately. Post’s net worth at his death was $33 million, whereas EGW’s estate was handled by a bankruptcy trustee.)
Not sure where Simon is getting his ‘evidence’
On the other hand…
The umbrella review identified 201 meta-analyses of observational research with 67 unique health outcomes and 17 meta-analyses of interventional research with nine unique outcomes. Coffee consumption was more often associated with benefit than harm for a range of health outcomes across exposures including high versus low, any versus none, and one extra cup a day. There was evidence of a non-linear association between consumption and some outcomes, with summary estimates indicating largest relative risk reduction at intakes of three to four cups a day versus none, including all cause mortality (relative risk 0.83, 95% confidence interval 0.83 to 0.88), cardiovascular mortality (0.81, 0.72 to 0.90), and cardiovascular disease (0.85, 0.80 to 0.90). High versus low consumption was associated with an 18% lower risk of incident cancer (0.82, 0.74 to 0.89).

"Why do you feel discouraged with GC ? Based on what ? And why is NAD uplifting ?"
And then end up talking about “stimulants”???
Nonetheless…I do have a question for you. Haven’t you been reading the various articles on this site about your first questions? If not, why not? If you don’t agree with our opinions- just say so. But nothing new there at all.
And then you accuse George of wanting to start a “debate”.
I have occasionally read some stats and research that show some benefits of coffee, but in moderation or low consumption. I am not an avid coffee drinker; I may have one cup in the morning, made of almond milk and a little instant coffee (preferably “Taster’s Choice”). Splenda as sweetener. I also like Roma a lot.
talk about a “tempest in a tea pot” or is it a “coffee pot”! look at all those ‘healthy’ adventists (and others) that line up week after week at the carb infused potlucks…i would challenge anyone who knows someone on heroin to wean them off of the stuff in 2 days…about the time it takes to eliminate the ‘need’ for caffeine…
