bartender - "What can I get ya?"
hipster - "Beer, coffee back."
Is this going to be the new trend in 2016 thanks to this most recent study stating coffee can in fact reduce your risk of liver damage? Please no!
According to Dr. Oliver Kennedy, who conducted this research as part of a team;
“1 cup per day was associated with a 22% lower risk of cirrhosis and 4 cups per day was associated with a 65% lower risk." - Examiner.com
Combine this liver damage study with the Feds study from last year which concluded;
"Coffee consumption was associated with reduced risk of total mortality (3-4% lower mortality with 1 cup/day), especially cardiovascular mortality." and "Consumption of coffee within the moderate range (3 to 5 cups/d or up to 400 mg/d caffeine) is not associated with increased risk of major chronic disease..."
And all of us coffee drinkers are going to live forever.
Okay, coffee will help us live forever and that's awesome, but what have you done for me lately, COFFEE!?!
5 OTHER AMAZING BENEFITS OF COFFEE
1) Reduce Anxiety - 2 cups of coffee a day could decrease your level of anxiety.
The caffeine in coffee helps the brain release dopamine into the pre-frontal cortex which is responsible for mood regulation. That dopamine is what gives you those happy feelings.
2) Reduce risk of dementia - This study suggests that moderate daily consumption of coffee will help prevent mild cognitive impairment or MCI.
Cognitively normal older individuals who habitually consumed moderate amount of coffee (from 1 to 2 cups of coffee/day) had a lower rate of the incidence of MCI than those who never or rarely consumed coffee
3) Reduce risk of melanoma cancer - Higher coffee intake was associated with a modest decrease in risk of melanoma in this large US cohort study.
The study focused on 447,000 people, gathering baseline data from an AARP Diet & Health food frequency questionnaire. Interestingly, over a median 10 year follow-up period, an inverse relationship was shown between the presence of cancer and consumption of 4 cups of coffee a day. (less diagnosis of cancer among those folks drinking 4 cups a day)
4) Increase in blood flow - "The study, which was published in the journal PLOS ONE, found that men who consumed between 85 and 170 milligrams of caffeine a day were 42 percent less likely to suffer from ED, while those who consumed between 171 and 303 milligrams were 39 percent less likely." - Huffington Post
5) Cold Brew is Better for the gut - Reducing acid reflux caused by coffee is easy.
Many folks complain about coffee causing acid reflux or other stomach acid related issues. Apparently, the process of cold-brewing leaves your morning brew two-thirds less acidic. Which will ease the gut pain & is very tasty.
