We all know that coffee gives us a nice energy boost in the morning, but there are other health benefits, too. Humans have been drinking coffee since the 17th Century. The English were the first recognize the social benefits of drinking coffee. Newly minted coffee houses were popularly known as “penny universities,” because for a cent one could get a hot cup of coffee and have stimulating conversations with other people.
In the United States, coffee is the leading source of antioxidants. According to a University of Scranton study, “nothing else comes close.”
The Harvard School of Public Health also suggests that drinking coffee can lessen the risk of type-2 diabetes, liver cancer, cirrhosis, and Parkinson's disease. Additionally, caffeinated coffee may help to prevent symptomatic gallstone disease. Not a bad resume, eh?
