According to a study to be published later this month in the Journal of the American Doctor- coffee drinkers make more money. The study which followed 7500 individuals across the country. Lead researcher and Harvard educated biochemist Kim Ming Ho started seeing a trend before the data was fully tabulated: "From the beginning it was obvious that income level and coffee intake were highly correlated,"
For example the average Wall St banker, earning between $400k and $800k drinks about 5.5 cups of coffee a day. Compare that to the listless auto mechanic earning a meager $34k and drinking just .5 cups a day. Ho notes that highly paid blue collar workers like police officers and fire fighters that work overtime also tend to drink more coffee and make more money. In other words, as the New Year begins the most important step you can make to enhance your paycheck is to drink more coffee.
Although Ho refused to speculate on why coffee increases wealth citing the impending publication of his research, several reporters agreed that the more coffee a person drinks the more work they can accomplish. In unscientific, anecdotal testing around the office we noticed that when coffee was removed from the break rooms, many reporters simply left for the day. The next day when the coffee was replenished the newsroom was humming with reporters rushing to finish work.
As the old saying goes "An apple a day keeps the doctor away," but an additional 3 cups of coffee a day keeps financial insecurity away.
Researchers recommend that "individuals interested in increasing coffee consumption should consult their physician and work with her to develop a coffee regimen that's right for them."
Coffee could be the key to financial stability for millions of Americans.
