One life: Make it count, stating 10 Healthy Reasons to Drink Coffee:
1. Coffee is a potent source of healthful antioxidants.
How it works: Antioxidants fight inflammation, an underlying cause of many chronic conditions, including arthritis, atherosclerosis and many types of cancer. They also neutralize free radicals, which occur naturally as a part of everyday metabolic functions, but which can cause oxidative stress that leads to chronic disease. In other words, antioxidants help keep us healthy at the micro-level by protecting our cells from damage. Finally, chlorogenic acid, an important antioxidant found almost exclusively in coffee, is also thought to help prevent cardiovascular disease.
2. Caffeine provides a short-term memory boost.
3. Coffee may help protect against cognitive decline.
4. Coffee is healthy for your heart.
5. Coffee may help curb certain cancers.
6. Coffee may lessen your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
7. Your liver loves coffee.
8. Coffee can enhance exercise performance.9. Coffee curbs depression.
10. Coffee guards against gout.
Given those reasons, that doesn't make coffee the exceptional drink one could have. Coffee has its downsides as well, cliche as it might sound but nothing, really, in this world is perfect.
