    When hot water runs through the coffee grounds while brewing, the substances in the coffee beans mix with the water and become part of the drink.

    Some of these substances are well known, including caffeine, but there are hundreds of other compounds in there as well, many of which science has yet to identify.

    Many of these compounds are antioxidants that protect our bodies from oxidation, which involves free radicals that damage molecules in the body.

    Without getting into complicated details, oxidation is believed to be one of the mechanisms behind ageing and common diseases like cancer and heart disease.

    Coffee, believe it or not, happens to be the biggest source of antioxidants in the Western diet, outranking both fruits and vegetables… combined (1, 2, 3).

The bureau added that because there is no additional incentive given for the teachers many qualified teachers who have diplomas in teaching have left the schools which has caused the education bureau to hire unqualified teachers.

Two years ago the Amhara Education Bureau added a hardship allowance for teachers who are teaching in Beyeda, Tselmet Aderkay weredas to reduce the high turnover of teachers around Semien Mountains read more
