Coffee IS Good for You! Here's Why...

Over the years, coffee has not gotten a good rap and we've been told to drink it in moderation. However, recent studies prove otherwise. 

Regular coffee drinkers experience less evidence of head and neck cancers, and mouth and throat cancers. 

It's also good for the brain and fights cardiovascular disorders, and lowers the incidence of stroke in women.

Current Studies Prove that Coffee Is Good for Us!

* Regular coffee drinkers have a 39% less risk of neck and head cancer, found a study published in the Journal, Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. 

* People who drank four+ cups of coffee per day had less incidence of throat and mouth cancers than non-coffee drinkers.

* In a recent study by neuroscientists at the University of Lisbon, it was found that coffee prevents neural degeneration of the brain, associated with age.

* The Iowa Women's Health Study found that women who drank one to three cups of coffee per day reduced their risk of cardiovascular disease by 24%.

* A Harvard Medical School study found that women who drink coffee lowered their chances of stroke by 19%.

* Men who drink coffee, cut their risk of aggressive prostate cancer by 60% (according to research: 2009 American Association for Cancer Research Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research Conference).

* According to a study in the journal Hepatology, people who drink coffee have a 41% less chance of developing liver cancer, compared to those who don't drink coffee.

Madam Aphrodite™ Speaks!

Naturally, there are downsides like caffeine and carcinogens. Yes, a cup of coffee contains trace amounts of carcinogens, which researchers say are in too small a quantity to be dangerous.

And you might be interested to hear this: Joe Vinson, author of a study on antioxidants, University of Scranton, in Pennsylvania, says, "Americans get more of their antioxidants from coffee than any other dietary source... Nothing else comes close."

Bet you didn't know that! :-)
