Wake Up To Coffee’s Benefits

Coffee provides more healthful antioxidants than any other food or beverage in the American diet, according to researchers at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania, who studied more than 100 different food and beverage items.  They found Americans consume 1,299 mg of antioxidants daily from coffee; the closest contributor was tea at 294 mg. … In addition, people who drank one or two cups of coffee daily, or nearly every day, had half the liver cancer risk of those who never drink it, according to a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.  In 2004, researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health found that drinking coffee cut the risk of developing the most common form of diabetes.
