I loved this story. You will too.
My Father had diabetes which contributed to his early demise.
My youngest brother was diagnosed with the disease in his 20’s. He is committing slow suicide by diet.
Way back last century when I was in my 20’s I was involved in a local professional group in Dallas TX. The speaker I brought in was one of the country’s leading endocrinologists from UT Southwestern Medical Center. After his talk I thanked him for his time and for enduring a dinner of rubber chicken and mushy vegetables. But what I really wanted was free medical advice.
“Doctor, my father and brother both have diabetes. Do you have any advice for me?”
The good doctor gave me a steely glare over the top rim of his glasses and said,
“Stay as thin as you can as long as you can.”
“You need to change the name of your food blog.”
“Because no one can remember Dea whatever it is you named it.”
“I didn’t name it. Your daughter-in-law named it. The blog name has some serious emotional attachments and…OK. Let me think about it.”

So I’ve thought about this for around three weeks. garycancook? No, too long. garysmess? No, readers won’t know the blog is about food. I was stumped until this morning. I needed a new name that was bold, innovative, and easy to remember.
“What do you think about garyskitchen, no apostrophe?”
“I suggested that three weeks ago.”
I hope you’re not looking for this place. Not me. Kind of funny though.
Conclusion: Coffee drinking was associated with reduced risk for death from various causes. This relationship did not vary by country.
Certain life choices are so significant that they change who we are. Before undertaking those choices, we are unable to evaluate them from the perspective and values of our future, changed selves. In other words, your present self cannot know whether your future self will enjoy being a parent or not.
