Regardless if you have little ones who wake you up at dawn, or you have a big meeting first thing – coffee is always a good choice. However, not all are convinced that coffee is a miracle in a cup. Between the age-old rumor that it stunts your growth, to Other reports that coffee is mold-filled and causes inflammation, coffee often gets a bad reputation. True or not, there are also studies that show that the effects of coffee on health can be positive and possibly linked to longevity.

Setting those coffee additions aside, nutrition professor at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Terry Graham, believes that the chemicals and antioxidant rich compounds in coffee generally reduce the risk of diseases. This seems to be a common opinion when interpreting the results of studies on coffee and longevity, and although they are by no means all conclusive, they do ease some of the guilt coffee drinkers may feel.
