Coffee, Good and Good for your health
The study showed that drinking 4+ cups of coffee may reduce a person’s risk of death by 64 percent. Even those over the age of 45 could lower their risk of death by 30 percent with 2 extra cups per day.
Caffeine – This notorious ingredient in coffee gives you energy, boosts your mood and improves your memory.
Vitamin B2 – This essential vitamin helps the body convert carbohydrates into energy, promotes healthy skin, hair and eyes and helps the body metabolize proteins and fats.

  1. In Canada we are constantly urged to just hand over the money, never fight back, and be polite. I have no doubt the employees would be charged with, at minimum, unsafe discharge of a firearm, which carries a longer sentence than assault and the employee who shot the killing bullet probably would be facing murder charges. Everyone would be talking about the poor robbers and their bad life, rotten childhood, and their oppression by our society. If they were any kind of minority group there would be wailing and carrying on about colonization and privilege how our oppression of them drove them to commit the crime.
