another coffee myth down. . .

if i had a dime for every time i've heard another woman tell me that she never drinks coffee because it's "dehydrating," and therefore bad for the complexion, i'd be living in ravello today. . .

but seriously, almost everyone has heard the conventional wisdom that you should drink 8 cups of water a day, and that coffee can't be counted toward that. in fact, it's common to read in women's magazines that you should drink an extra glass of water for each cup of coffee.

today we learn all this is myth. drink your moderate amount of coffee; it's not dehydrating you, and it's not ruining your complexion. this welcome news is a small benefit of a larger finding on water, widely reprinted.
