Emerging Health Benefits of Coffee: Recent Advances in Epidemiologic and Experimental Knowledge


Coffee is one of the most beloved beverages in many parts of the world. The notion that drinking coffee might not be good for one’s health came from studies done in the 1950s and 1960s. These studies failed to account for cigarette smoking, which went hand-in-hand with coffee drinking. Since then, the medical community has done a turnabout on the health benefits of coffee. More recent large, long-term studies start to show that coffee offers protection against type 2 diabetes, some cancers and neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
