Coffee has been around a long time and blamed for many ills-from how
it could raise your blood pressure, make your heart race, impair sleep
and maybe even cause cancer. So, is coffee good for you?
Does Coffee Have Health Benefits?
What a difference a few years can make. Now the World Health Organisation
(WHO) is taking coffee off possible carcinogen list. Recent studies has
shown that coffee may in fact have health benefits including protecting against Parkinson’s Disease, type 2 diabetes and liver disease, including lung
cancer. Coffee also appears to improve cognitive function and decrease
risk of depression.
Coffee, Is It Good For You?
Moderate coffee consumption (3 to 4 cups per day) has been linked to longer
life span. A 2015 study in circulation found that coffee consumption
was associated with a 8% to 15% reduction in the risk of death than
non coffee drinkers. The reason that drinking coffee is beneficial
is unknown although the obvious factor of course may be the caffeine.
Coffee is one of the worlds most popular beverages.

Everything In Moderation
Even though moderate amounts of coffee are good for you as listed

ensure the potential health benefits of coffee avoid
adding sugar. And if you think coffee effects your sleep do not drink
it late in the afternoon.
But in the end, one thing hold true : Coffee may well be the healthiest
beverage on the planet.
The Bottom Line
Its unusual that a food on the “cancer risk list” comes off it – and
even more unusual that such food then becomes a health choice as
is the case with coffee.
But as many millions of people around the world drinking coffee every day
will tell you when it comes to COFFEE there is nothing like it.
