Drink coffee and be healthy
A growing body of research shows that coffee drinkers, compared to nondrinkers:
- Are less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, and dementia.
- Have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes.
But coffee isn't proven to prevent those conditions. Researchers don’t clinically control how much coffee people consume and then study the result. Instead, they ask people about their coffee habits and factor that consumption into their overall health assessment. It's possible that coffee drinkers have other advantages, such as better diets, more exercise, or protective genes.
So there isn't solid proof. But there are signs of potential health benefits, and that’s very good news for us passionate lovers of good coffee!
