After much tussling back and forth, California regulators have decided once and for all that coffee does not pose a major risk of causing cancer. This is very good news to coffee giants like Starbucks, which contended that the benefits of drinking a cup or two or three a day was much bigger than the risks associated with a chemical produced in the coffee roasting process. As the Associated Press reports, the news was less joyously received by a group called The Council for Education and Research on Toxics, which started all this with a lawsuit almost eight years ago. They have vowed more litigation. Meanwhile, coffee nerds such as me think a cup of black sounds really good right about now.
