A second study carried out by a scientist from the University of Southern California came to a similar conclusion: People who regularly drank a cup of coffee had a 12 percent lower mortality rate compared to those who drank no coffee.

According to the study, those who consumed coffee daily seemed to have a reduced risk of suffering from colorectal cancer.

Coffee is one of the most frequently consumed drink worldwide. Approximately three-quarters of adults in the United States drink the stimulant. The notion that drinking coffee is unhealthy seems to be slowly fading away in recent times.

While too much of anything isn’t good, different studies seem to point out that a long-term moderate consumption of coffee reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and certain cancers.

Experts believe that the polyphenols and other bioactive compounds in the brew have antioxidant properties. Scientist could not find any difference in the health-related effects between regular coffee and decaffeinated coffee.

Is this a reason to drink more coffee? That’s up to you. Moderation is the key to all things.
