Well, maybe not forever, but studies are coming out of the woodwork that are singing the praises of coffee which seem to reduce death from, well… pretty much EVERYTHING! It feels good to start your day knowing you are doing something healthy for yourself and supporting honest, hardworking folks as well!
Here’s a quick and dirty list of the many science-backed benefits of coffee, and oh yeah, all the studies as well.
- Cancer Reduction:
- Breast cancer– Coffee lowered risk of post-menopausal breast cancer
- Liver Cancer– Habitual coffee drinkers showed lower risk of liver cancer
- Prostate Cancer– Coffee reduces the risk of prostate cancer, but an inverse relationship is noted in cases of advanced prostate cancer
- Liver Health– 1 to 2 daily cups protects against cirrhosis of the liver, making it REALLY good for hangovers!
- Cardiovascular disease (especially for women!) – daily coffee consumption provides 50% reduction in cardiovascular disease and 25% decrease across the board for all causes of mortality! You can’t go wrong with that!
- Parkinson’s Disease – higher coffee intake is associated with a significantly lower incidence of Parkinson’s.
- Fat Loss– coffee consumption slows weight gain and improves glucose tolerance – Look good feel good!
- Type 2 diabetes– daily coffee consumption reduces the risk of contracting type 2 diabetes.
- Inflammation– coffee consumption has beneficial effects on inflammation and HDL (good) cholesterol
- Oxidative Damage– coffee consumption lowers oxidative damage to DNA. which means, we age slower!
- Depression– Depression rates decrease with increased caffeinated coffee consumption, sorry decaf lovers, this one doesn’t apply
For those of you with adrenal fatigue or caffeine sensitivity, don’t worry! Studies have found that decreased mortality (longer lifespan) was found even among drinkers of decaf!
