News to Warm a Coffee Drinker’s Heart


Here’s the sort of news I like to see:

People have been drinking coffee since at least the 15th century, and it’s been a staple of the workplace for more than a century. But it’s only fairly recently that science has explained some of its incredible health benefits.

As an avid coffee fan, I’ve written a lot over the years on new scientific studies about coffee’s health benefits. Here’s a quick recap of some of the best of them.

According to science, coffee is a veritable miracle drink that reduces your chance of death, lowers risk of heart disease, stroke, and suicide, burns fat, slows down the aging process, and maintains brain activity farther into old age.  Clearly with results this good, we can reasonably expect that they must be accurate and will not be contradicted by future research.

Sure, there’s a chance that drinking over 35 ounces per day will begin to have some negative cardiovascular consequences, but that’s manageable.  And besides, I’m skeptical of that one.

    NICE. Next study will undoubtedly confirm not only that there is no health constraint re quantity but also, the stronger the brew, the better.
