Male Writers: Keep on chugging coffee as you write your novel

Posted by Jason Diamond

If you find yourself making frequent trips to your local joint that serves Stumptown or Intelligentsia coffee as you type away at that book you’ve been working on, it might be to your benefit.

According to a study done by Harvard researchers, men who downed the most coffee – six or more cups a day – were nearly 20 percent less likely to develop any form of prostate cancer and a whopping 60 percent less likely to develop lethal prostate cancer (that which causes death or spreads to the bones). Guys who drank one to three cups a day had a 30 percent lower risk, the study showed.

So now if you can just figure out how to cure the lack of sleep brought on by all that coffe, along with the bouts with writers block, you should be totally golden.
