For a long time, coffee got a bad rep. The tables have turned and big names in the health industry have come out in favor of coffee. Next time someone tries to tell you coffee isn’t good for you, here are 5 solid sources that say, “YES, ACTUALLY IT IS.”

The World Health Organization

“An influential panel of experts convened by the World Health Organization concluded […] that regularly drinking coffee could protect against at least two types of cancer, a decision that followed decades of research pointing to the beverage’s many health benefits. […] The favorable findings on coffee consumption have been so consistent across numerous studies in recent years that many health authorities have endorsed it as part of a healthy diet.”

Harvard School of Public Health

“People who drink about three to five cups of coffee a day may be less likely to die prematurely from some illnesses than those who don’t drink or drink less coffee, according to a new study by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health researchers and colleagues. Drinkers of both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee saw benefits, including a lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, neurological diseases, type 2 diabetes, and suicide.”

National Cancer Institute (National Institutes of Health)

“The researchers found that the association between coffee and reduction in risk of death increased with the amount of coffee consumed. Relative to men and women who did not drink coffee, those who consumed three or more cups of coffee per day had approximately a 10 percent lower risk of death.”


“A growing body of research shows that coffee drinkers, compared to nondrinkers, are less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia and less likely to have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes.”

The Journal of the American Medical Association

“Findings indicate that higher coffee and caffeine intake is associated with a significantly lower incidence of Parkinson’s Disease. […] Age-adjusted incidence of PD declined consistently with increased amounts of coffee intake, from 10.4 per 10,000 person-years in men who drank no coffee to 1.9 per 10,000 person-years in men who drank at least 28 oz/d.”
