Great. So this fourth cup with half and half is OK, then?

The headline is all I need to know. I don't need to read the study itself.

I just e-mailed my wife at work.

I told her the Internet says it's OK.

Yes. In fact, four cups is sort of the lower limit for the pretective effects against type-2 ("adult onset") diabetes.

The half&half is another question, but a true coffee hound wouldn't pollute his coffee anyway.
