The National Coffee Association is very, very hyped about their latest study, which showed that 64 percent of Americans aged 18 or over had at least one cup of Joe on the previous day.
Think carefully how you take your caffeine in the morning – a choice between tea and coffee can determine your salary and popularity at work。你可得慎重选择从哪儿摄入早上的咖啡因——一杯茶还是一杯咖啡，因为你的选择可以决定你的薪水以及在公司的受欢迎度。
People who drink more than two cups of coffee per day are less likely to suffer from liver conditions, according to a landmark Australian study.
That’s jacked up from last year, when 62 percent said they’d imbibed on the previous day.
Employees who drink coffee are more likely to be hot-headed,argumentativeand live on a knife-edge, researchers found.But they have bagged more pay rises over the last five years and earn on average £34,490 a year – £2,160 more than tea drinkers。研究者发现，那些喜欢喝咖啡的员工，往往会更表现得更加急躁，好辩，生活节奏更紧张。但他们也在过去的5年中，比喜欢喝茶的人得到了更多的薪水涨幅，平均拿到了34490英镑的年薪——比喜欢喝茶的人多了2160英镑。
The poll by Zip HydroTap instant water heaters found that executives are more likely to prefer coffee, but tea drinkers were ‘the life and soul’ of the office。这次由即开型热水器厂商Zip HydroTap组织的调查显示，更多的高管倾向于喝咖啡。但是喜欢喝茶的人往往成为公司的“活力源泉以及灵魂人物”。
The study, conducted by Monash University in Melbourne, focused on 1100 liver disease patients at the Monash Health Clinic and found that coffee was able to reduce the impact on their condition.
Most coffee drinkers — 79 percent — brewed it at home.
And 84 percent of tea drinkers claim to be a team player compared to just 74 per cent of coffee fans.Fewer coffee drinkers said they were ‘very stressed’ - ten per cent compared with 12 per cent of tea drinkers – but coffee drinkers were more likely to be late for work, despite their caffeine fix。有84%的喜欢喝茶的人善于团队合作，相比之下，只有74%的喜欢喝咖啡的人具有很好的团队精神。同时，喜欢喝咖啡的人中只有10%的人认为自己压力很大，而喜欢喝茶的人却有12%的比例表示感到压力大。尽管咖啡因可以提神，研究显示喜欢喝咖啡的人却更容易迟到。
Zip spokesman Nick Taylor said: 'Most workers need a cup of tea or coffee to get them through the day and most people could instantly define themselves as either a tea or coffee drinker.Zip的发言人说：“大部分的员工都需要一杯咖啡或者一杯茶来帮助他们完成一天的工作，因此很多人能够很快地将自己定义为喜欢喝咖啡的人或者喜欢喝茶的人。”
Two cups a day were found to reduce the damage caused by hepatitis C by up to 13 percent. Four cups were found to reduce the signs of fatty liver disease -- the most common liver disease affecting about 40 percent of Australians -- by as much as 24 percent.
Meanwhile, “gourmet” coffee is increasingly popular among younger drinkers. Nearly half of millennials — 48 percent — said they had a cup of coffee they considered to be “gourmet” the day before.
The typical tea or coffee drinker has between three and four hot drinks everyday but tea lovers were more likely to combine a brew with a good gossip.Yet the average worker makes just one hot beverage for their team in a day and 72 per cent said they need a drink to ‘perk’ them up and stay motivated。喜欢喝饮品的人一天平均会喝3到4杯热饮，而那些发烧友则会在和同事闲聊的时候都不放过机会来一壶。但其实，普通人一般一天只需要一杯热饮，72%的人说他们需要饮料来使自己保持清醒和充满活力。
Tea drinkers dressed in a more casual and cool fashion around the office whereas coffee fans described their style as funky and edgy, the research showed.Those who favour a cuppa were more likely to drive in to work, whereas coffee fans were more likely to hop on the bus or train。喜欢喝茶的人一般会穿得更加的随意，相较之下，喜欢喝咖啡的人会打扮得更加时髦。喝茶的人一般会选择开车上班，而喝咖啡的人则通常会选择公车和地铁作为出行的交通工具。
Current statistics showed that around 6 million Australians are, or have been, affected by some form of liver disease, with fatty liver disease, hepatitis B and hepatitis C the three most common forms.

The last time Americans were this caffeinated was in 2012, which was another year marked by a booming stock market, a horrific school shooting (in Newtown, Conn.) and a wrenching sports pedophilia trial (of Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky).
Nick Taylor, Sales Director for Zip Heaters UK, said: 'The research shows there is definitely office politics when it comes to doing the tea round. We have all been in the situation where we have a heavy work load and are getting hassled by team members to make a big round of tea.But it’s pretty harmless if it’s just playful office banter.'Zip Heaters英国总部的销售总监Nick Taylor谈道：“这个研究表明，在茶歇中是绝对有办公室政治的。我们都有这样的经历，在繁忙的工作中，一个团队的同事因为喝什么而吵得不可开交。但只要这种争吵保持在办公室玩笑的范围以内，是没有什么大的坏处的。”

8 ways that drinking coffee is connected to better health and a longer life
Caffeine is the most commonly used psychoactive drug in the world — for good reason. It wakes us up, helps us stay on task, and provides an oft-needed energy boost.
And most of us in the Americas and Europe get our caffeine fix from coffee.
But people often worry that they should limit their coffee consumption or cut it out completely. That's probably because coffee can feel like a crutch.
It is possible to overdo it on caffeine —many heavy coffee drinkers surpass the recommended limit of 400 mg of caffeine per day, and that can cause insomnia, restlessness, or a fast heartbeat, especially if consumed too fast.
But most research on coffee consumption indicates that coffee is not bad for us, and is associated with some pretty impressive health benefits.
In most cases we can't say that coffee actually causes health benefits — the causal mechanism is unclear. But research does suggest that coffee drinkers are less likely to suffer from certain illnesses.
There are plenty of foods and drinks that most of us should consume less. But here's why coffee shouldn't be on that list.
"Certainly moderate amounts of coffee, depending on the liver disease you’re looking at, seem to be associated with less liver damage and probably less liver fat."
Liver health: A review that combined the results of nine studies found that drinking more coffee is associated with lower risk for cirrhosis.
In the review, drinking one cup of coffee per day was shown to be linked with a 22% reduced risk for cirrhosis, a liver disease that is often caused by heavy alcohol consumption. Two daily cups were associated with a 43% reduced risk, three cups with 57% reduced risk, and four cups with 65% reduced risk.

Heart disease: A review of more than 200 studies found that people who drank three or four cups of coffee per day were 19% less likely to die from cardiovascular disease.
The study found the most dramatic results were found in patients with hepatitis C and that drinking tea had no effect on the liver.
Type 2 diabetes: One large review of studies found that every additional cup of coffee one drinks per day was correlated with a 7% reduced risk for developing Type 2 diabetes.

Cancer: One review found that heavy coffee drinkers (who had at least three cups a day) had an 18% reduced risk for cancer.
Another review found that at least one cup each day was associated with 15% reduced risk for liver cancer and an 8% reduced risk for endometrial cancer.
Some data indicates that coffee drinkers may be less likely to suffer from oral/pharyngeal cancer and advanced prostate cancer as well.

In a separate study, coincidentally published on the same day, Harvard University’s Chan School of Public Health found similar results with people who drink up to five cups of coffee per day.
Alzheimer's disease and dementia: A meta-analysis of studies about coffee intake and brain health calculated that regular coffee drinkers were approximately 16% less likely to suffer from Alzheimer's, dementia, or cognitive decline.
There are smaller studies that suggest drinking coffee can lead to even bigger risk reductions for Alzheimer's.

Depression: One large study of more than 50,000 women showed that drinking at least a cup of coffee each week was associated with 15% reduced risk for depression, and drinking two to three cups per day was associated with 20% reduced risk.
Another study that looked at more than 100,000 men and women found that coffee drinkers were 45% less likely to die from suicide and heavy coffee drinkers (four or more cups a day) 53% less likely to die from suicide.

"In the whole study population, moderate coffee consumption was associated with reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease, diabetes, neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s and suicide," the findings found.
Overall mortality: One large study of more than 500,000 European people found that in a 16-year-period, men who drank three or more cups per day were 12% less likely to die, and women 7% less likely to die.
In particular, people were less likely to diefrom circulatory and digestive diseases. Heavy coffee drinkers also had healthier livers.
Another study of 185,855 Americans confirmed that result. People who drank one cup per day were 12% less likely to die. Two to three cups were associated with an 18% decrease in risk for early death. (Decaf had the same benefits.)
"Bioactive compounds in coffee reduce insulin resistance and systematic inflammation," said Ming Ding, a Harvard doctoral student.
"That could explain some of our findings. However, more studies are needed to investigate the biological mechanisms producing these effects."
No preventative effects were found during this study, which was published in the latest edition of the journal Circulation.
