Coffee's Positive Health Benefits

You have heard it over and over about how "bad" coffee is for human health: all that caffeine, too acidic, can lead to cancers of the digestive tract, etc. All this is WRONG according to recent research findings from several independent medical and academic scientists (see article links below). In fact, moderate coffee consumption (3 to 5 cups per day) can be quite beneficial to several body systems, from digestive, to neurologic, and metabolic, to name three. Many of these benefits occur whether the coffee is regular or decaffeinated. Also, the caffeine in coffee affects the body differently than does isolated caffeine used as an additive. It seems the other compounds released by the heat from brewing coffee work with the caffeine and all together have a generally positive effect on health.
