A large prospective study found a reduction in death among men and women who consumed 4-5 cups of coffee daily. Even decaf provided some benefits. This is the most recent study among several others showing the benefits of coffee drinking.
The “good stuff” may not be the caffeine, but two other compounds found in coffee. It may be the 3,5 Dicaffeoylquinic acid, a powerful antioxidant or Niacin (yes, B3). The study doesn’t ascertain the reason behind the lower death rate, but realizes that other unknown compounds in coffee could be contributing.
In the meantime, go brew a fresh cup of coffee and enjoy it with no quilt.
