Drinking Coffee Can Be Healthy

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
Is it healthy or not? Many conversations about drinking coffee may end up with this intriguing question. People will always have convincing answers in both ways: coffee is good for you, in fact it’s healthy, and coffee is bad for your health.

A recent large prospective study by National Institutes of Health and posted on The New England Journal of Medicine concluded that coffee consumption was inversely associated with total and cause-specific mortality. Coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages and a single study shouldn’t be used as a reference for general statements. Although the association between coffee consumption and the risk of death remains subject of studies, several other studies and reports support the trend that coffee is in fact a healthy beverage.

Research has shown that coffee drinkers, compared to nondrinkers, are less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia. Other studies have suggested that coffee drinkers have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes. Lastly, coffee has been associated with several weight loss diets and it can be a helpful beverage if you are trying to drop a few pounds.

Moderation may be the answer for coffee drinking habits, just like for almost everything else. Additionally, the way you drink coffee play an important part on whether this delicious beverage can be considered healthy or not. Basically, coffee is a healthier beverage than, for example, sodas, but if you are adding tons of sugar and cream then the advantage is gone.

So, drinking coffee can be healthy as long as you drink it in moderation and you go easy on sugar, cream and other things that you are adding to your cup of Joe.
