Is coffee healthy? For the first time, scientists can definitively say, "Kind of in certain ways but in other ways probably not and for the overall question we guess it depends."
The WSJ clears up the question once and for all, with a good old-fashioned "roundup" story!
Coffee is good and healthy for the following health conditions: Diabetes, prostate cancer, colon, mouth, throat, esophageal and endometrial cancers, cavities, gallstones, cirrhosis of the liver, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease, suicide, death in general.
Coffee is bad and unhealthy for the following health conditions: blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, miscarriage, messed up babies, anxiety, insomnia, obesity.
Are these risks and benefits related to caffeine or some other substance in coffee or to some other habit that coffee drinkers have, which is not coffee at all? Maybe, say scientists.
