We recently wrote about how chicken soup REALLY IS good for cold symptoms. Now it turns out that drinking coffee is a good way to prevent yourself from getting more serious diseases.
Moderate consumption of coffee is being shown to have generally positive and protective effects on the emergence of disease conditions. Food Technology magazine reports that recent studies of coffee in combination with reviews of research gathered over the past 30 years reveal that consumption improves glucose regulation and lowers the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Nutritionist Roger A. Clemens says, "Many negative health myths about coffee drinking may now be transformed into validated health benefits. Scientific evidence now suggests that moderate coffee consumption?3 to 5 cups a day?may be associated with reduced risks of certain disease conditions." These include Alzheimer's disease, kidney stones and depression.
Another area of coffee?s positive affect on the body is its possible cancer-protective properties, possibly due to its naturally occurring and brewing-produced antioxidants.Some research strongly links coffee's properties to protect blood vessels from dilating as one possible mechanism that brain cells use to defend against Parkinson's disease. One cup of coffee a day may be enough to cut the risk of developing this disease in half.
