Tuesday: The Coffee Conspiracy?
The news item today (below) shows you how much our society is really fucked up! I wrote last year here on this blog about how coffee is so much more demonized in msm (main-stream-media) than alcohol that it makes any rational person (ie. coffee-drinking) question the existence of a conspiracy theory here.
Is it paranoia to think that the multi-trillion dollar alcohol industry pays for the vast majority of these seemingly endless coffee-studies that get published all over msm? Or can there be another explanation? Something to take focus away from the incredible damage and social tragedy that alcohol causes…
How many studies do you find in msm that discuss whether beer is good for you?

Beer sales last year in the US alone are estimated at atleast $300 billion while coffee sales are estimated at an embarrassingly low $14 billion by comparison. Do you remember when was the last time that you read some article about the health risks of drinking beer? I don’t remember seeing any! It is not by chance…someone is trying to fool you! Take a look at these official figures:
- In 2015 in the USA alone, 88,000 deaths are officially registered as having alcohol-related causes. That is, approximately 10 deaths per hour.
- In 2012 worldwide, some 3,300,000 deaths are officially registered as having alcohol-related causes. That is, approximately 400 deaths per hour globally, 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.
To put things into another perspective, approximately 6% of all global deaths have alcohol related causes. In the USA alone, alcohol abuse costs society atleast $250 billion a year. Yet any time an individual dies as a result of caffeine abuse, we soon witness a viral news item:

When I grow up I want to be….
This is cute! I found this item today at an online-Armenian news source. It features a young Levon Aronian (extreme left) at the 1996 Olympiad (Yerevan) where he was an awe-struck 13-year old boy…in 2014 Levon was ranked #2 in the world(!) and many think that he will one day become World Champion.
