Coffee First Thing? Not Such a Great Idea

A UK university has suggested that having a coffee as soon as you get up, particularly after a bad night’s sleep, could disrupt blood sugar levels. The aspersions cast by this “glucose” news should be correctly understood; the researchers are not trying  insidiously to suggest that coffee is bad, but rather that it is better to drink your morning coffee after a good breakfast and not as soon as you leap out of bed. And to say that the British have thrice cursed coffee and will spend millions of pounds on studies proving it is healthier to drink tea than coffee is a foolish and unfounded assertion that only a French frog suffering from pathological jealousy could come out with.
