Science has long extolled the virtues of coffee. But the latest study, reported in the American Heart Association journal Circulation, on the medical benefits of your morning joe confirms that coffee is basically the superhero of beverages. Even decaf coffee can literally save your life, suggesting that it's not just caffeine but the actual beans conferring long life and prosperity.
The study showed that people who regularly drank moderate amounts of coffee daily were less likely to die from cardiovascular disease, neurological diseases, type 2 diabetes, and suicide. 'Moderate' consumption was classed as five cups or fewer per day.
