Coffee Drinking Has Numerous Health Benefits, Experts Report

July 20, 2010: 08:58 PM EST
Scientists reported on the numerous health benefits of drinking coffee at the recent IFT annual meeting. Studies have shown that regular coffee drinking can reduce the risks of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, they said. The health-promoting benefits of coffee stem from its ingredients, which include caffeine, various bioactive compounds, chlorogenic acid, minerals, and antioxidants, according to a scientist. Other studies found that drinking coffee does not increase the risk of stroke or mortality. Another panelist reported on studies indicating that women who drink coffee tend to have higher cognitive function, better memory, and less cognitive decline with aging. A Finnish study of men and women found that drinking as much as five cups of coffee a day cut the risk of Alzheimer’s by 65 percent.
