Excuse us while we sip from our third cup of the day.
Whether you're a Patch editor or just an everyday joe, a lot of people enjoy their Morning Joe. Some like Joe in the afternoon, at night or, heck, how about all day?
But, according to a New Jersey Newsroom article, those of us enjoying our coffee a little too often might be at greater risk of damaging our eyesight. Sorry, we couldn't read that—we were wiping a smudge off our glasses.
According to the article, citing both articles in Medical Daily and Science Daily, a study conducted at Harvard University has determined that people who drink three or more cups of coffee a day have a better chance of developing what is called "exfoliation glaucoma" than those who do not partake.
Alas, such news does not bode well for towns like Maplewood, South Orange and West Orange, which have several places to get one's coffee fix, including Cupcake Corral, Village Coffee, Able Baker, Crane's and Kings in Maplewood; Grid Iron, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, and Eden Gourmet in South Orange; and Panera and Supreme Bakery in West Orange (did we leave any out?).
Would studies such as this help to steer you away from your daily brew? Or, do they not worry you so much? Let us know below.
