The Surprising Health Benefits of Coffee

In an article by Ty Bollinger from Truth About Cancer you will learn:
- Coffee is one of the most popular drinks on the planet. While often used as a stimulate to wake people up (or keep them awake), there are actually health benefits to coffee.
- A 2008 study led by the Harvard School of Public Health determined that men and women who drank as much as six cups a day did not increase their risk of disease or early death. Prior data that “coffee is bad for you” did not take into account the unrelated bad habits of participants such as smoking, physical inactivity, or overall poor diet.
- Coffee has been shown to improve heart health (due to fewer calcium deposits), decrease the risk for MS and Parkinson’s disease, and improve brain health. It has even been shown to play a role in fighting type 2 diabetes.
- The benefits of coffee depend on where the beans are grown and harvested as well as how it is prepared. Most coffee beans are sprayed heavily with pesticides. So you should select only coffee beans that are certified organic.
- The benefits for caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee is almost the same. But make sure you are drinking real coffee, not the coffee “concoctions” filled with health-harming sugars, fats, and artificial flavors. Stick to around 2 cups per day.
