12 Ways that donuts are actually good for you

How many times have you Googled self-improvement pieces, only to find out you already knew the information they try to pass off as innovative, revolutionary knowledge? Safe to say, I've had enough cold showers, breathing exercises and runs to last me a lifetime.

Not that they haven't improved my productivity and outlook on life, but it would be nice if something that doesn't involve inflicting pain on myself, maybe something that bestows nothing but pleasure on me.

Like donuts, for example. I think they're very pleasurable and if they were revealed to actually improve one's life rather than be shunned as a treat we should only eat on special occasions (rather than five at a time), that would be great. It would be even better if said benefits were given to us in easily digestible list form.
