There are mixed opinions about coffee.

Some believe it is healthy and energizing, while others claim it is addictive and harmful.

When you look at the evidence, the majority of studies on coffee and health actually show that it is good for you.

For example, coffee has been linked to a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, liver diseases, Alzheimer’s and more.

The reason for this may be the impressive amount of powerful antioxidants found in coffee.

In fact, studies show that coffee provides more antioxidants in the diet than any food group.
Drinking coffee has been associated with a reduced risk of many diseases.

For example, coffee drinkers have a 23-50% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Each daily cup of coffee is linked to a 7% lower risk.

Drinking coffee also seems to be very beneficial for the liver, with coffee drinkers having a much lower risk of liver cirrhosis.

Coffee may also lower the risk of liver and colorectal cancer, and several studies have shown a reduced risk of heart disease and stroke.

Consuming coffee on a regular basis may also reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease by 32–65%.

Some studies have shown that coffee may also benefit mental health. Women who drink coffee are less likely to become depressed and commit suicide.

Above all, drinking coffee has been linked to a longer lifespan and up to a 20–30% lower risk of premature death.
