Doctors are responsible for so many amazing, life altering endeavors. Some of these pursuits changed the course of modern medicine and relieved the world of unnecessary pain.
You deserve a day dedicated to you, oh wait, George Bush already did that in 1991, making today National Doctor's Day.
We also want to thank the doctors that chose to pursue the noble study of "the benefits of coffee."
You guys ROCK!
9 Ways Doctors Proved Coffee Is Pretty Good For You
According to the report;
“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…”
According the Scientific American;
"Coffee and tea may do more than just jolt you awake—they could also help keep your brain healthy, according to a slew of recent studies. Researchers have linked these beverages with protection from depression, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease."
Cardiologists at the University of California, San Francisco concluded,
“Contrary to common belief, there is little evidence that coffee and/or caffeine in typical dosages increases your risk of heart attack, sudden death or abnormal heart rhythms.”
In an international review of 66 studies in 2013, scientists found coffee drinking had little in any effect on the risk of developing pancreatic or kidney cancer. In fact, another review suggested that compared with people who do not drink coffee, those who do have half the risk of developing liver cancer.
According to AuthorityNutrition.com:
"Coffee, believe it or not, happens to be the biggest source of antioxidants in the Western diet, outranking both fruits and vegetables… combined (1, 2, 3)."
"When you’re treating yourself with a cup of coffee, you’re not only getting caffeine but a whole bunch of other beneficial compounds, including powerful antioxidants."
Drinking two to three cups of coffee a day lowered the overall risk of death 10%, says the study, funded by the National Cancer Institute and AARP.
Other research has suggested coffee can help prevent cognitive decline and can boost vision and heart health.
By having a drink with about 200 milligrams of caffeine (the amount in about 16 ounces of ordinary brewed coffee), people said they experienced an improved sense of well-being, happiness, energy, alertness and sociability.
And yet another review found that compared with non-coffee drinkers, people who drank four to six cups of coffee a day, with or without caffeine, had a 28 percent lower risk of Type 2 diabetes.
So thanks again doctors, everywhere. Lets all have another cup of the good stuff.
