Coffee: It's good for you (again)

Why coffee is good for you

It seems like media outlets and their accompanying talking head medical professionals have taken much enjoyment out of telling us alternating stories about why coffee is good for you or why coffee is bad for you. It's one of the great health-knowledge flip flops that never ends. I've always stood by the fact that the cultures who drink the most coffee (Sweden, Swizterland, Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Finland, etc.) are the happiest and healthiest cultures in the developed world, so it simply must be so that coffee is good for you. Well, it turns out the good infallible folks at NPR have confirmed my spurious assumption. 

"In our study, we found people who drank three to five cups of coffee per day had about a 15 percent lower [risk of premature] mortality compared to people who didn't drink coffee," says one of the study authors, nutrition researcher Walter Willett of the Harvard School of Public Health.
