Health perks of coffee

Coffee tastes good — but is it good for you? More than half of Americans are java junkies, yet the average joe doesn’t know beans about the health effects of our daily brew. In fact, scientists say there’s evidence that coffee has many effects on health — some good, some bad.

Longer life

Moderate coffee drinking -- less than five cups per day -- has been linked to a decreased risk of death from chronic illnesses like heart disease, type 2 diabetes and neurological diseases. The study from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health found protective effects in both regular and decaf coffee, suggesting that it’s not just caffeine that comes with health benefits, but possibly the naturally occurring chemical compounds in the coffee beans.

Alzheimer's disease

About three cups of coffee each day might stave off Alzheimer’s for older adults experiencing memory declines. A small study found coffee consumption helped slow the progression of mild cognitive impairment, a condition that often leads to Alzheimer’s.

Skin cancer

Coffee may lower the risk for the most serious type of skin cancer, malignant melanoma. A 2015 study found that frequent coffee drinkers -- those who consumed four cups or more per day -- had a 20 percent lowerrisk for developing maligant melanoma. Prior research has also shown coffee may help prevent other types of non-melanoma skin cancers. Decaf did not seem to offer the same protection.

Coffee & calories

Coffee contains almost no calories - as long as you drink it black. But fancy sweetened drinks sold by specialty coffee retailers are often loaded with sugar and fat - and hundreds of calories that can contribute to weight gain. A venti white chocolate mocha from Starbucks delivers 510 calories - roughly 25 percent of an adult’s normal daily calorie intake.

Blood pressure

Caffeine can increase blood pressure - but apparently mostly transiently. Long-term studies have found no link between regular coffee consumption and high blood pressure, a.k.a. hypertension.

“Still, for persons with hypertension it may be worthwhile to see if switching to decaf improves control of blood pressure,” said coffee researcher Dr. Rob van Dam, an adjunct assistant professor of nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health and associate professor at Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine in Singapore.
