Cardiovascular disease, incident stroke, type 2 diabetes, the list goes on. Give yourself a pat on the back knowing that your favorite beverage gives you a boost of protection from some serious diseases.

“Compared to non-coffee drinkers, light-to-moderate consumption was associated with a 12% lower risk of all-cause death...17% lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease... and 21% lower risk of incident stroke…” [1]

“Meta-analyses have concluded that moderate coffee consumption is associated with a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, suggesting that drinking 3–4 cups of coffee per day is associated with an approximate 25% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes, compared to consuming none or less than 2 cups per day” [2]
