âStudies have suggested that coffee may help reduce the risk of a number of diseases and ailments including Type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's, colon cancer, cirrhosis, gall stones, depression and more,â explains Orduz. âCurrently major medical centers and universities are contributing to our knowledge about what components in coffee help in the disease-fighting process.â
On the show, Orduz also details the rich history and traditions of the Colombian Coffee Federation.
âContrary to popular belief, itâs not mass produced--the average farm is less than 4 acres,â he explains. âThese are family-run farms with a rich cultural heritage and diversity in people.â
The symbol of this outstanding legacy since 1960 is Juan Valdez, who is the quintessential âcafeteroâ or coffee grower. His mission is to symbolize the proudly kept traditions of those hard-working men and women who pick every bean by hand, and are 100% committed to their families, their communities and the environment.
âWe are honored to have both Juans on our show,â says Doug Campbell, Executive VP of Programming for BrandStar Entertainment, the producers of The Balancing Act TV show. âAnd we are all delighted to learn about the health benefits of our beloved pick me up!â
