Espressos, lattes, Frappuccinos – Americans love their coffee. But are there benefits for your body?
The National Coffee Association’s recent survey found the number of Americans drinking a daily cup of coffee is at its highest level since 2012. Does your cup of coffee have anything to offer other than that energy boost?
If you’re part of the 64 percent of Americans who drink coffee every day, we have good news: coffee drinkers have a longer lifespan. A 2015 study found that coffee consumption was associated with up to a 15 percent reduction in the risk of death.
And an article published by Harvard Medical School says that coffee drinkers may have a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, Parkinson’s, Type 2 diabetes, gout and liver cancer.
