More Coffee, Please!

Brown courage, jitter juice, your savior in a mug—call it what you may, new research suggests that a cup of coffee may improve your health and help you live longer. During this enlightening study, nearly 20,000 individuals were observed. The people who consumed at least four cups of coffee daily had a 64 percent lower risk of early death compared to those who never or rarely consumed coffee. Loaded with antioxidants, coffee has been shown to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, liver disease, Alzheimer’s, colorectal and skin cancer. Although this is great news for most coffee consumers, others, such as pregnant women, children or anyone with a heart condition, should avoid caffeine altogether.
