Below is a link to some new evidence from Harvard that roughly 2 cups of coffee is good for us! Coffee contains chlorogenic acid, a potent and naturally occuring derivative of caffeic acid, found in the coffee bean. Coffee has also been shown to prevent brain degeneration (Parkinson’s Disease, dementia, etc.) and certain cancers (see link). I love the research that says coffee is healthy. And oddly enough I seem to always find a flaw in the research that says coffee is bad for us. Imagine that!
