Prevent Common Diseases By Drinking Coffee

We do love coffee. Besides that it tastes great, it also can help to prevent diseases. Based on an article in The Daily Meal, coffee is now shown to help reduce joint pain. So, if you work in an office at a desk then you should run and get a few more cups of coffee!

Health Benefits of Coffee

Health Benefits of Coffee

Coffee has not always been touted as a drink that’s healthy. In the past it has been connected to heart issues, insomnia, amongst other health issues. Let’s not even talk about what milk, cream and sugar in your coffee add to that…

Anyway, have a look at what The Daily Meal has to say:

And of course, not every study can prove that coffee will really cure any disease on its own. As Dr. Alberto Ascherio, professor of epidemiology and nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health said to CNN, it’s more common for a study to find an association between coffee and health effects rather than prove how coffee can prevent diabetes, cancer, or depression.

Still, if coffee is a regular part of your morning (and afternoon, and night) routine, you can rest assured that you’re doing your part for your body. If you’re not a coffee drinker, start slowly, like you would with any new dietary habit. Everyone metabolizes coffee differently — it’s why some people can crash after a cup and others stay up all night after a few sips — but it can still have positive health effects. Seeing as we have a large latte on our desk right now, we’re happy with this news.

So, besides the joint pain, coffee is actually said to help prevent the following diseases:

  • Skin Cancer
  • Breast Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Colon Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Ednometrial Cancer
  • Liver Cancer
  • Oral Cancer
  • Depression
  • Death

Check out the article itself to read up on study results, etc. regarding the health benefits of coffee with regards to these diseases. We think that even if it only helps somewhat in the prevention of one of those diseases then it’s worth to continue to drink your coffee everyday!
