Is drinking coffee bad for you? Three or four cups a day can help fend off disease

first_img Tags: NULL Sarah Spickernell Friday 14 November 2014 12:53 pm Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Sharecenter_img For years, it has been ground into us by health experts that coffee is bad for our health.  But it turns out that the drink could actually help fend off certain diseases, as long as it’s consumed in moderation.  A new report by the Institute for Scientific Information of Coffee has shown that regularly drinking three to four cups of coffee a day can reduce risk of type 2 diabetes by 25 per cent. Consuming less than two cups a day didn’t have any real impact, however, and it didn’t seem to be caffeine that was having the effect – the reduction was observed for both caffeinated and decaffeinated versions of the drink.  Previous research by the institute has revealed a similar effect, with each additional cup of coffee a day reducing risk of the disease by between seven and eight per cent.  This is no small advantage that coffee offers – diabetes currently afflicts 380m people worldwide and the number is increasing. The economic burden of the metabolic disorder amounts to $548bn (£350bn), making it one of the most expensive diseases to deal with.  So all in all that’s good news for coffee-lovers! Now you can enjoy your favourite beverage in peace, and do away with the guilt you have been taught to feel. Is drinking coffee bad for you?

C&C fails to enjoy a festive craic as fizz goes out of cider market

first_imgWednesday 14 January 2015 8:07 pm C&C fails to enjoy a festive craic as fizz goes out of cider market Show Comments ▼ IRISH cider maker C&C yesterday issued a profit warning due to poor sales in Britain in the last four months of 2014 as it pursued a failed takeover bid for pub group Spirit.The makers of ciders Magners and Bulmers, as well as Tennent’s lager, said it would advance plans to “significantly reduce costs” in England and Wales.It did not specify what this would mean, but said it aimed to return its cider business to “acceptable levels of profitability”.Sales volumes fell 9.8 per cent in the three months to November in the two reg­ions, which accounted for around a quarter of C&C’s revenues. C&C forecast operating profit of €115m (£89m) in its financial year, which ends in February, down from €127m in 2013.Sales falls in the US eased to 16.2 per cent from an average of 21 per cent in the first half of the year as competitive threats receded, it said. “While the performance during the period is… disap­p­oint­ing, the improve­ment in the US provides some encouragement,” said Good­body analyst Liam Igoe.C&C’s bid last year to buy the Spirit pub group failed after the chain was bought by Greene King for £774m.It had hoped to use Spirit’s 1,200 pubs to increase its distribution in the UK, where it has faced a number of new rivals, such as Swedish brand Koppar­berg and AB InBev’s Stella Cidre.

Live like Ed Miliband: UK homes for sale with two kitchens

first_imgIf we were ever in any doubt as to whether Ed Miliband was a man of the people, we now have solid proof: the Labour leader may have two kitchens, but he only uses the “small one”, he has insisted. Either way, we’re all keen on keeping up with the Milibands – so we’ve put together a few of the UK’s best homes with two kitchens. Because sometimes you need one kitchen for cooking, and one to prepare snacks….1. Derby, £2m  The second kitchen has more of a “country” feel (Source: Scargill Mann & Co)At the top end of the price scale is this mansion in Derby, which not only features two kitchens and a utility room, but also a pool kitchen, for making poolside snacks (although we should point out it’s important to leave an hour between eating and swimming). The house also has five bedrooms. That’s practically as many bedrooms as kitchens. 2. Surrey Quays, £750,000 Rustic versus bright and airy (Source: Field & Sons)This “charming Victorian terrace” has between four and five bedrooms, and comes with that London rarity: gardens at the front and back of the house. And it’s only half a mile from Canada Water station, on the Jubilee Line, from which would-be party leaders can be whisked to Westminster in no time. 3. Boughton, £275,000 Matching oak kitchens make up this Chester home (Source: eMoov)Not only does this home, in Boughton, have two kitchens, it’s also got a kitchinette, plus four bedrooms and four bathrooms, and off-road parking for three cars. Kitchens aside, its biggest selling point is its proximity to the canal, along which its new owners can stroll into Chester city centre. 4. Feltham, £450,000 A handy open-plan kitchen means snacks are never far (Source: Frost)Our final property is situated in sunny Feltham, and within easy reach of Hatton Cross. The house has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two kitchens and a 35ft lounge, with a “further living room” – fit for a wannabe PM.

Open Europe reveals 100 EU regulations that cost Britain £33bn

first_img Open Europe reveals 100 EU regulations that cost Britain £33bn Show Comments ▼ Jeff Misenti Monday 16 March 2015 3:34 am Share The EU’s 100 most draconian regulations are costing Britain over £33bn a year, according new analysis from the think-tank Open Europe.Adding insult to injury, the report reveals the accompanying impact assessment found the costs of a quarter of these regulations outweighed the estimated benefits, but were signed off by the British government all the same. These included the Temporary Agency Workers Directive and the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive. The total cost of these rules is so large, they exceed the Treasury’s expectations for all the revenue to be raised in Council Tax for the 2014-15 financial year. However, despite this gloomy picture, moving to one alternative to Britain’s EU membership – the “Norway option” – would result in 93 of these regulations remaining in place.Norway is a member of the European Economic Area (EEA). Under the EEA, countries such as Norway and Iceland still comply with a host of Brussels rules. If the UK went down the road of Norway post-Brexit, it would still need to comply with swathes of rules governing financial services, social services and employment.Open Europe argues EEA membership would be worse for Britain than trying to reform the EU from within, as EEA members possess no formal voting power in any of the EU’s decision-making bodies.Open Europe’s Pawel Swidlicki said:The bad news is that overall, EU regulation costs too much in relation to the benefits it generates. The even worse news is that if the UK left the EU and became like Norway, 94 per cent of the cost associated with the most burdensome EU rules would remain in place but the cost would be even harder to cut, since Norway has no formal voting powers over EU rules.While the EU’s regulatory burden remains unnecessarily high, the report highlights a crucial benefit the UK derives from playing by Brussels’ rules – easing trade across the single market.Open Europe points to the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive, which harmonised investment services regulation, as an example. David Cameron has pledged a renegotiation of Britain’s terms of membership, followed by a referendum should the Tories win the General Election.Many eurosceptics would be in agreement with Swidlicki that Norway’s position is far from satisfactory and have instead mooted the possibility of a bilateral agreement with the EU similar to the status enjoyed by Switzerland.According to the report, here are the five costliest EU-derived regulations: RegulationCost per year1UK Renewable Energy Strategy£4.7bn2CRD IV package£4.6bn3Working Time Directive£4.2bn4EU Climate and Energy Package£3.4bn5Temporary Agency Workers Directive£2.1bn  center_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity Weekzenherald.com20 Rules Genghis Khan’s Army Had To Live Byzenherald.comNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteableyDiscovery29+ Fascinating U.S. Navy WarshipsDiscoveryMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesComedyAbandoned Submarines Floating Around the WorldComedyDefinitionThe Most Famous Movie Filmed In Every U.S. StateDefinitionGundry MD Bio Complete 3 SupplementTop Surgeon: This Simple Trick Empties Your Bowels Every Morning (Almost Immediately)Gundry MD Bio Complete 3 Supplement More From Our Partners UK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org Tags: Brexit whatsapplast_img read more

He replaces another Lib Dem, Danny Alexander, who, like Cable, lost his constituency contest last Thursday. In total, the Prime Minister has appointed 10 women to the cabinet, with Ros Altmann named new pensions minister yesterday afternoon in something of a shock turnaround, after David Gauke was earlier touted as the likely contender for the role. Meanwhile, sterling continued its climb yesterday, rising to over $1.56 during the day’s trading.  The pound has risen strongly since the Conservative victory, although this week’s jump is also attributed to the prospect of an earlier-than-expected rate hike from the Bank of England.  Tags: David Cameron General Election 2015 People Sajid Javidlast_img read more

In 2016, growth will fall to 2.2 per cent, 0.1 percentage points lower than it originally predicted, the IMF said in an update to its World Economic Outlook released today.It cut its global growth forecast to 3.3 per cent for 2015 – that’s 0.2 percentage points lower than it predicted in April, although the figure is expected to rise to 3.8 per cent next year. The IMF said a “setback in activity” in the US had caused the revision – despite a rebound in oil prices and more stable global inflation.Among other factors affecting growth are the bank holiday in Greece and subsequent referendum, which pushed down the IMF’s prediction for euro area growth to 2.5 per cent, from the 3.1 per cent it originally predicted.Meanwhile, a sharp correction in the Chinese stock market over the past month is also likely to affect growth in the area. The organisation urged advanced economies to keep “accommodative monetary policy” measures in place, to support economic activity and lift inflation.”In a number of countries with fiscal space, the near-term fiscal stance should be eased, especially through increased infrastructure investment. In economies with high public debt, the pace of fiscal consolidation needs to strike an appropriate balance between debt reduction and imposing a drag on economic activity. Efforts at implementing structural reforms remain urgent across advanced economies, both to tackle crisis legacies and to raise potential output.” center_img International Monetary Fund predicts weaker UK growth in 2015 as lower oil prices and Greek uncertainty take their toll Share Show Comments ▼ whatsapplast_img read more
