It’s rare to hear good news about things we do actually being good for you but…

Of course beware if you are able to handle the caffeine :).

The health benefits of coffee include a lower risk of type 2 Diabetes, a lower risk of depression, and improved Liver health.  But there’s more …

One study that involved 1,567 people, had some interesting results:  Researchers found that drinking caffeinated coffee offered positive results.  In fact, the study showed that the coffee drinking participants had a lower risk of death after 18 years of follow-up.  That’s impressive.  The researchers also found that drinking one cup of coffee per day (at a minimum) was also associated with a lower risk of death from cancer.

The health benefits of coffee don’t stop there.   Researchers are finding that additional health benefits of coffee include a reduced risk of developing:  Parkinson’s disease, melanoma, prostate cancer, and more.

Moderate coffee consumption was studies in the Nurses’ Health Study which evaluated 83,700 nurses’ diets.  The study found that drinking coffee was associated with several health benefits, including a decreased risk of stroke in women.

An interesting study conducted by the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition found that caffeine can lead to increased fat oxidation.  This is encouraging news for athletes and non-athletes, alike.

The take-away from all of this:  COFFEE AIN’T BAD.
