News Source: More Consensus On Coffee’s Benefits Than You Might Think

May 27, 2015

Coffee has more benefits than one might think. Aaron E. Carroll, a professor of pediatrics at Indiana University School of Medicine wrote in The New York Times that due to the positive research on the effects of drinking coffee, it should stop being viewed as a beverage consumers need to cut back on. He cites research results such as this one. The study found that those who consume about three to five cups of coffee each day were at the lowest risk for cardiovascular disease problems. Carroll continues that moderate coffee consumption is linked to lower rates of nearly all cardiovascular disease, among dozens of other positive research results. Carroll notes in the end that, “[Coffee] is a completely reasonable addition to a healthy diet, with more potential benefits seen in research than almost any other beverage we’re consuming.”
