Here's a couple of highlights -
There's an association between 'moderate' consumption and an mitigating the affects of heart failure.
Any positive health affect of coffee consumption doesn't diminish until 10+ cups a day.
It was found to be a pain reliever, both physically with joints and muscle pain and mentally with decrease rates of depression.
It'll help maintain good cholesterol and reduce type 2 diabetes.
It'll help prevent some cancers.
It'll help in workout performance.
