The health benefitsof drinking coffee.
Quick Tips from Coffee Detective
Drinking coffee protects you against avariety of ailments and diseases.
Why is there resistance to the idea that coffee benefitsyour health?Almost thirty years ago researchers at HarvardUniversity announced a connection between coffeeconsumption and cancer.A few years later they retracted the study andrecognized that the findings were flawed.However, since that first study and the media frenzy thatfollowed, coffee has been labeled with the stigma of being unhealthy.In fact, nothing could be further from the truth.Coffee can help in the prevention and treatment of diseases and illnesses as varied as Alzheimer's disease,diabetes, liver disease, skin cancer and more.Step back a few paces, look at the health benefits of coffee, and you'll see that in addition to being awonderful beverage, coffee is perhaps the most healthyof all our favorite drinks.Remember, coffee contains no calories, no fat and barelyany carbohydrates – and is also a major source of antioxidants.
Coffee is the #1 source of antioxidants inthe U.S. diet.
Antioxidants in coffee?Yes, indeed. And plenty of them, according to researcherJoe Vinson, PhD, a chemistry professor at the Universityof Scranton.Fruits like dates, cranberries and grapes are high inantioxidants, and pack plenty of other benefits in termsof vitamins and minerals.But when it comes to getting antioxidants from naturalsources, Americans get more from coffee than they dofrom any fruits, vegetables or other beverages.
