CIGARETTE
SMOKING HITS
RECORD LOW
U.S. cigarette smoking dropped to an alltime low of 14 percent in 2017.
That's down from 15.5 percent in
2016 and a plummet from 40 percent
in 1965 when the federal government
began tracking smoking, the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention says.
Still, about 1 in 5 adults used a tobacco
product in 2017, including smokeless
tobacco and e-cigarettes.
Disparities persist. Tobacco use
was highest among people with GEDs
(43 percent), those with serious psychological distress (41 percent) and the
uninsured (31 percent).
Eliminating smoking would prevent a
third of U.S. cancer deaths.

COFFEE

TEA

Is one caffeinated drink supreme?
Popular research topics, these favorite drinks to start the morning both have benefits. A sampling:
3 People who drink more than one cup of black or green tea a
day have slower buildup of calcium in arteries, reducing risk of
cardiovascular problems.
3 Drinking coffee might help people with colon cancer survive
the disease.
3 Black and green tea's antioxidants fight inflammation, the
sometimes-painful swelling response when the body's normal
functions are disrupted.
3 Coffee drinkers who average three to five cups a day-
caffeinated or not-might be less likely to die prematurely from
heart and neurological diseases, type 2 diabetes and suicide.
Sounds great, right? There are some cons, and each person can
decide whether potential benefits outweigh them.
Both coffee and tea can stain teeth, and caffeine can disrupt
sleep if you overdo it or you're more sensitive to the stimulant.
Caffeine is also a diuretic, which could flush water through your
body more quickly than you like. Also, because coffee and some
teas are acidic, they cause upset stomach for some people.
In the end, if one bothers you, cut back or give it up.
The verdict: Coffee and tea are tied. Both typically can be consumed without worry, and your health might benefit.
One caution: Be sparing if you add cream and sugar. A cup
that's more dessert than drink will negate positives.
